Thanks for these highlights, Marina! I´m glad you are there helping others <br />to connect the dots between internet rights and women´s rights. You mention <br />"So far I have not noticed any references or mentions of freedom of <br />expression or internet regulation issues in these spaces concerned with <br />women's rights." Similarly, I was just in an excellent conference on freedom <br />of expression hosted by IFEX - you can check out the conference blog here - <br />https://ifexgm2011.wordpress.com/. Amazing freedom of expression activists <br />with growing awareness of the need for "traditional" FOE actors to <br />interconnect with internet rights defenders and in the area of internet <br />censorship - but surprisingly limited gender awareness of these implications, <br />especially in areas that the Erotics research uncovered such as sexuality, <br />sexual health, women´s rights, reproductive choice, etc. Having a <br />conversation with such traditional FOE journalist experts and the latest <br />internet rights defenders and women´s rights advocates would be fascinating <br />- and is necessary. We all need to break out of our silos! Erika
