Equal power: Know your rights online (Glitch)

A free 1.5 hour training on advocating for safer online spaces for women currently in or aspiring to be in politics with BSL interpretation.

About this workshop

Evidence shows that women are more likely to be harassed online, and this is even worse for women of colour, disabled and LGBT+ women. It is not the responsibility of the victims of online abuse to protect themselves and deal with its lasting effects, and Glitch is doing everything it can do to hold decision-makers accountable and stop the problem at its core. In the meantime our workshops will equip participants to navigate the online landscape with confidence. We want to help women of all ages, backgrounds and political affiliations to overcome the barrier of online abuse, feel more confident to use online platforms in order to use their voices online.

There are a variety of laws to help protect digital citizens in online spaces. This module introduces learners to the legal rights and protections they have in online spaces and equips them with the knowledge to erase data, report abusive content and take legal action when needed.

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

1. Identify 4 legal rights and protections for online safety

2. Recognise 3 approaches to escalate actions against online abuse

3. Explore limitations of the law in the UK
