Social media platforms and other digital technologies have given rise to new forms of gender-based violence. Online violence threatens the safety and rights of individual women, girls, and members of other marginalized groups; and undermines the strength of democracies. Critically, the consequences of online gender-based violence spillover into the physical world.

Please join NDI and the U.S. Department of State for a panel showcasing the “Global Partnership for Action on Gender-Based Online Harassment and Abuse.” The Global Partnership is building a global coalition to improve the prevention and response to online gender-based violence. Hear from experts from civil society, government, and more on we can stop the democratic deficit by ending online violence against women in politics and public life.
