- Gender and Technology Institute, Berlin + (Online threats and gender based violence t … Online threats and gender based violence trap too many women into a contradictory situation in which on one hand the use of the internet is crucial for their work and/or activism, in order to coordinate actions, enable a wider reach out, display new identities, and on the other hand they are also increasingly exposed to surveillance, harassment and punitive actions. All these factors have led to a situation in which the internet is not a safe space and in which it is common to see women's work and voices being deleted, (self)-censored, and actively prevented from being seen, heard or read. Answers to our call for applications echoed this situation and while many applicants reflected on the stereotypes and prejudices they had face when engaging with tech, there was also a general acknowledgement of a lack of security (either digital, physical or well-being) of women when accessing, using and developing technologies. Besides, the use of tech to undermine privacy and create new forms of surveillance and control over women bodies and opinions was also remarked. Among women targeted, the WHRD and LGTBQI activists working on gender social justice issues or sensitive topics, such as health, reproductive and sexual rights were felt as particularly at risk. Moreover, vocal women, such as bloggers and journalists engaged in politics or feminist issues were also cruelly under attack. The aims of the institute were to train participants in order to learn tools and techniques for increasing their understanding and practice in digital security and privacy and in order to become digital security trainers and privacy advocates within their own organisations and communities. The Institute was also intended to better understand what could be new approaches to privacy and digital security including a gender and cultural diversity approach. Contents addressed encompassed theoretical elements dealing with gender and technology, privacy and surveillance, training skills and practical tips and methodologies to become an outstanding privacy advocate or digital security trainer. Other dimensions, such as holistic security, self care, risk analysis, tackling online violence, develop feminist principles of the internet were also discussed along the encounter.t were also discussed along the encounter.)
