As part of the review of the Beijing +25 Action Agenda, Centre for Social Research’s (CSR) dialogue was a three-fold strategy to explore current developments and challenges of protecting women’s human rights in the online space. Though the event was cancelled due to the spread of Covid-19 and keeping the safety of all participants in mind, CSR took its Global Policy Dialogue online and hosted a discussion on Online Human Rights Violation Against Women.

Our short documentary that explores the role that digital technology has played for women in the 25 years since the Beijing Conference and examines the exploitation of this technology to propagate violence against women by traffickers and other human rights abusers was also uploaded on our website. The documentary shows the wide gender gap between users online and invited snippets from influencers in the field of online safety and security to discuss the pressing issues and experiences of women online.
