The power of tech can & should be ours- another TBTT postcard
No-one should have the right or the ability to harrass or abuse me online. My safety and privacy is of paramount importance but so is my freedom to be the best I can be by using technology for my benefit, for my empowerment.
More women should be involved in the creation of technology. More women should have access to it. Silence regarding online VAW is not the solution. Sharing and joint action is. We need to learn how to use privacy settings, we need to be conscious of what we share and with whom, we need to use our real-world experience. Let us not assume that just because we are in the privacy of our rooms behind a screen, that danger does not lurk out there. Let us use the same safety principles online that we do offline.
Do not shy away from the power of technology. Embrace it!
