Beyond the “sext” : technology-facilitated violence and harassment against women [Audio recording]

On 29 October 2013, Women’s Health Victoria hosted a presentation by Dr Anastasia Powell (RMIT University), Dr Nicola Henry (La Trobe University), Dr Delanie Woodlock (DVRCV) and Mandy McKenzie (DVRCV).

The presenters explored the trends in technology-facilitated sexual violence and harassment, including: the unauthorised use of sexual images and the appropriation and distribution of sexual assault images, the use of internet services to procure a sexual assault, online forms of sexual harassment and stalking, the use of technology in the context of domestic violence, gender-based hate speech, and virtual rape. Additionally, the SmartSafe research conducted by the DVRCV, the gaps in current policy and legal responses, the ways in which technology is used to enhance women’s safety, and resources were also discussed.
