On 13th February we will launch the first edition of our brand new Fix The Glitch Toolkit. This toolkit is designed to support individuals who want to help end online abuse but might not know where to begin. We have created this toolkit to not only raise awareness of online gender based violence (OGBV) but to begin addressing the problem by equipping communities with tools to take action. This is an exclusive edition comprised of only 100 copies. Find out more here.

To officially launch the Fix The Glitch Toolkit we will host a lunchtime TweetChat at 12:30pm (GMT) on 13th February on how can we end online gender based violence. A Tweet chat is a Twitter-based conversation around a specific topic, using a designated hashtag (#FixtTheGlitch) for each tweet. During the tweet chat, our chair will post questions from the Toolkit which is where you are welcome to share your own posts and views on this issue.

Our expert friends joining us for the discussion are:

  • Laura Bates, Author and Founder of Everyday Sexism
  • Sandra Pepera Director of Gender, Women and Democracy, National Democratic Institute #NotTheCost
  • Soraya Chemaly, Director of Women’s Media Centre
