The present report explores women’s experiences of and demands for corporate accountability in cases of technology-related violence against women (VAW) as highlighted by the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) seven-country research initiative, “End violence: Women's rights and safety online”, conducted in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Kenya, Mexico, Pakistan and the Philippines. Here, in-depth case studies on survivors’ experiences, their attempts to access justice, reviews of corporate policies, and interviews with public policy representatives have been evaluated with reference to: a) national telephony companies, b) social media and networking platforms, and c) pornography websites. A total of 24 case studies were documented across the seven countries, and the policies of 22 companies were reviewed.
These case summaries are based on in-depth case studies mapping women’s experiences of technology-related VAW and their attempts to access justice either through domestic legal remedy or corporate grievance mechanisms. The original case studies from the Democratic Republic of Congo were developed by country researchers from the project partner Si Jeunesse Savait and the summaries were prepared by Kris Kotarski.
