Technology Driven Violence Against Women - Pakistan Country Report 2014

The aims of this research on technology driven violence against women were multifold. On the one hand it attempts to discover and document in detail how technology driven Violence Against Women (VAW) takes place, whilst on the other, it tries to identify the technologies/ platforms used for the purpose, and the types of harms experienced by women, i.e., emotional, psychological, physical social and/or economic harm. Further, it attempts to explore the barriers to, or opportunities for, effective legal and/or civic remedies as well as corporate remedies available to women as measures for redress. The overarching aim of the study is to inform the substance and direction of our advocacy on technology driven VAW.
