Globally, a staggering 85% of women have reported witnessing online violence, and nearly 40% have experienced it personally. Women, girls, racial, ethnic and other historically marginalised communities are the most likely to have their images abused online and subjected to demeaning non-consensual sexual acts. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) — the UN agency known for advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights, but less well known for its work to eliminate gender-based violence online — wanted to do something about it.
