Start with survivors and activists. Stir in technologists, digital security trainers, designers, artists, filmmakers and writers. Add a healthy dose of feminism. Go ahead and add an extra spoonful! Cook until you can’t wait any longer. Your anti-GBV movement is ready! Get it while it’s hot!
Take Back the Tech! is joining with the Women Human Rights Defenders International Coalition (WHRDIC) to send messages of solidarity to WHRDs defending and advancing the rights of women globally.
Today marks International Women Human Rights Defenders' (WHRD) Day. Human rights defenders face frequent violence, which tends to escalate if they are LGBTQI and/or women because of the multiple discriminations that they already face. WHRDs fight to defend our human rights, but they need our solidarity and support.
We're kicking off this year's 16 Days campaign with videos, and you're the director! All you have to do is pull out your smart phone; interview a few women and girls at school, at work or in your community; get their opinions and permission to share; and publish the video.
That's what we're asking Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Join our campaign beginning 21 July to demand answers and action!
