Twenty projects from Africa and Asia and the diaspora received small grants in 2020 from the All Women Count - Take Back the Tech! initiative.
All Women Count-Take Back the Tech! is a four-year project from 2017 to 2020 being coordinated by APC’s Women's Rights Programme (WRP) under the All Women Count consortium. The consortium’s concern is violence against women, in particular violence experienced by women, girls and trans people at risk (LBT, sex workers and women and girls with disabilities).
Take Back The Tech! is a global, collaborative campaign project that highlights the problem of tech-related violence against women, together with research and solutions from different parts of the world. The campaign offers safety roadmaps and information and provides an avenue for taking action. The campaign was initiated in 2006 and leads several campaigns at various points in the year, but the biggest annual campaign takes place during 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence (25 November to 10 December).
