Session Description

Over the past two years, there has been an increasing production of guides and other self learning resources oriented at better understanding what is violence against women (online and offline) and how to document and share about the initiatives, processes and tools that are challenging it under its different forms. The workshop will address this panorama of resources departing from the participants experiences and their needs in relation to those materials. When mapping what is there and what is missing, they will draft guidelines for shared good practices when producing new materials (such as how to not reinvent the wheel and duplicating upstream work, thinking ahead the maintainability, translatability, feedback, peer review and overall sustainability of those resources) and will reflect on how to develop materials that are ethical, inclusive and accessible. This workshop should enable people engaged with the production of self learning resources around privacy and digital security to better understand how to include a gender and intersectional perspective, inasmuch as it should enable networking among people planning to produce gender-related materials in the field of privacy and digital security.
