Digital Self Care + Self Defence Workshop on July 23rd
For women and girls, the odds of facing harassment while using social media are significant, statistics show that women are 27 times more likely to be harassed online than men. Women and girls of colour face an even bigger threat: they are 34% more likely to be mentioned in abusive or problematic tweets than white women. This makes it crucial for women to be educated and empowered about defending themselves against abuse and reporting the perpetrators effectively.
Glitch provides training tailored for women and girls who are either in, or considering taking on leadership roles, public appointments or activism, and wish to have a flourishing online presence whilst maintaining their privacy and protecting themselves against online abuse. Our next free Digital Self Care + Self Defence Workshop is taking place on July 23rd at London City Hall, at 6pm. Tickets are available at Eventbrite.
This event is a great opportunity to understand how to build your social media presence while simultaneously preserving your personal wellbeing. You will learn techniques for online self care, safety and security in just two hours. You will learn how to set and stick to personal digital boundaries and how to establish a healthier relationship with the digital space.
As online gender-based violence (OGBV) is an issue that disproportionately affects women and girls with multi-intersecting identities and marginalised communities, Glitch would like to extend a particularly warm welcome to individuals from these groups. We have received a grant by Doteveryone that will enable us to support travel and/or caring costs for those who come from low socio-economic backgrounds, young mothers and young carers.
