Women are increasingly bearing the brunt of digital abuse. The rise of social media platforms has created greater opportunities for hate against women to make its way online. This abuse can be devastating for those targeted and it also has direct negative consequences for women's democratic participation.
In this episode, we'll examine what's behind the phenomenon of online abuse and examine the ways in which activists and legislators in the highly digitalized Nordic countries are trying to stem the tide of digital harassment. We also ask META, who owns Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, what they're doing to combat this threat to women's rights.
This episode episode comes from a Nordic Talks live event held in Reykjavik, Iceland, organized by the Nordic Digital Rights and Equality Foundation, NORDREF.
