Event description
Our panel of speakers will discuss the sharp rise in online abuse against women, as well what needs to be done to stop it.

About this event

Online abuse is a growing problem for many girls and women. Last year, more than a third of women, and almost half of girls and women aged 15 to 25, said they had been cyberstalked, sent explicit images without their consent, or abused online. Many more are coming forward with shocking accounts of violence that leave traumatised or fearing for their lives, with women of colour being disproportionately affected.

Social media giants have pledged to tackle gender-based violence. Is it enough, or should big tech do more to crack down on perpetrators? As a new bill criminalising cyberflashing is set to be published, what more can governments do to protect the online safety of women?

Guardian senior reporter Alexandra Topping leads our panel, which includes Professor Neil Chakraborti, Professor in Criminology and Director of The Centre for Hate Studies at University of Leicester; campaigner, speaker and writer Gina Martin, and another speaker to be announced. Together, they will discuss the issue, and explore the tireless and essential work of those leading positive and proactive change.
