About the Webinar
Gender-based violence against women and girls remains a global threat to the public health of women and girls during emergencies. During the pandemic when all are confined in their home as a precautionary measure, restrictive movement imposed by the government, social and economic stress is high, the gender-based cyber violence against women and girls is increasing exponentially. The women and girls have been targeted online to induce, coerce, to intimidate or cause fear, anxiety, humiliation and extreme emotional distress. Women and girls are soft targets of the perpetrator of a crime, as they can easily be manipulated as compared to men. While many efforts have been taken to tackle gender-based cyber violence during COVID-19 are at a larger scale globally, but it remains extensive and widely under-reported.
The main aim of this expert talk is:
- To highlight the main cause of gender based cyber violence.
- To know how gender based cyber violence is being protected before actual commission of the offence.
- To know the laws which provide protection from gender based cyber violence.
- To highlight the grey area of the law which is unable to tackle the gender based violence against women and children.
