Organizer: ASEAN Regional Coalition to #StopDigitalDictatorship
The ASEAN Regional Coalition to #StopDigitalDictatorship is hosting the “Women Human Rights Defenders in the Digital Space: Realities & Solutions to Speak Truth to Power Freely” webinar to discuss the realities faced by WHRDs online: cyberbullying, online harassment, online attacks, hate speech, because of their human rights advocacy work, ethnicity, religious beliefs, gender identity or sexual orientation.
Join the conversation as we will also explore themes such as online defamation, online gender bias, trolling, and online security arising from Covid-19. The webinar is taking place as part of Women’s History Month, the NGO CSW65 Forum, and as part of our regional efforts to #StopDigitalDictatorship. Inspiring Women Human Rights Defenders and Activists from Southeast Asia will be sharing with us the challenges they are facing online and how they are courageously fighting back, resisting and responding to it.
