Talking about snowflakes on the iceberg

It is late spring of 2015 and we are sitting in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, talking about a grave violation of women's human rights: violence against women (VAW). It has been a long time since I have been invited to speak about technology-based VAW to a group which is primarily working in the area of women's rights and VAW, but engages little if at all with internet rights. It is a mixture of politicians, police officers, government representatives, advocates, support organisations and academics.
