Jan 23, 2023

This learning brief focuses on technology-facilitated gender-based violence (TFGBV) affecting publicly visible women in humanitarian and emergency contexts. The learning brief begins with an overview of TFGBV prevalence, then focuses on risk groups of publicly visible women and how TFGBV impacts them, including women parliamentarians and politicians, journalists, women human rights defenders and activists. It moves on to provide examples of good practice in working with these different groups of publicly visible women to prevent and respond to their particular risks of TFGBV. The learning brief concludes with recommendations to highlight key issues for consideration by GBV actors working with publicly visible women as part of wider GBV prevention and response programming in humanitarian settings.
