For women and other marginalized groups, the issue of technology-facilitated gender-based violence (GBV) has much bigger implications than we even know. Questions of race, class, gender, ethnicity, and sexuality remains largely unexamined when it comes to technology and gendered violence. In this presentation, feminist analysis and grassroots expertise will be used to investigate these complex questions and explore the ways in which we can move forward and make meaningful change. We will present an overview of thinking through technologies to end violence against women with an intersectional lens providing examples of online activism projects taking place in Canada.
