What Works to Prevent Cyber Violence against Women and Girls?

Published on 17 October 2018

Cyber violence against women and girls (Cyber VAWG) is a new and emerging form of violence and the term is used to describe how the internet and information and communication technologies exacerbate and magnify acts of violence against women and girls.

It includes hacking, impersonation, surveillance/tracking, harassment/spamming, recruiting victims into violent situations, and malicious distribution of intimate photos and messages. This document presents findings from a rapid review of available literature on what has worked to prevent cyber violence against women and girls. It is accompanied by a parallel query (Q211) on the nature and prevalence of cyber VAWG.
