Being a diverse and forward-thinking movement also means consistently seeking to understand and experiment with new ideas. The GBV Prevention Network, therefore, offers access to a wealth of compelling resources from both members and non-members. Here, you can keep up-to-date with thousands of the latest ideas and efforts being made to prevent VAW around the region. You can also share your own vision and practices, so others can learn from your experiences. We hope these materials will continue to expand our Network’s culture of learning!

Activists ICT Toolkit for Feminist Movement Building

Across the world, women are using information and communication technologies (ICTs) to support rights agendas, tell their own stories and challenge emerging issues in regard to access, women’s voices and violence. African women are writing about sexuality, women members of parliament use social media to promote their political agendas, rural women access market prices via mobile phones, students find journals online and save themselves money.

Most of our activism and organising happens and always will happen in person and “offline”. Linking to the tools of the online world, can create powerful ways to make visible our campaigns in new and wider spaces and to engage expanded networks of people.
