Mini-Hackathon on Tackling Technology-Facilitated Gender Violence

None
Survivors of technology-facilitated gender violence - like image-based sexual abuse, cyberstalking, or harassment - often do not know where to turn for assistance, nor do they always understand their legal rights and options. End Cyber Abuse hopes to create an app, specifically a chatbot, to offer guidance to survivors of technology-facilitated gender violence. We hope this app can provide immediate guidance on how to take down intimate images, how to report abuse or harassment to platforms, tools and tips for digital security, and guidance on legal rights. In this session, we will first facilitate a collaborative brainstorming session on ideas for an app. Then, we break participants into groups, where they select an idea and design the backend of an app that assists survivors of technology-facilitated gender violence. Each group will then pitch their idea, with time for Q&A and feedback.
