Rima is a researcher for the “End violence: Women’s rights and safety online” project on improving corporate policies to end technology-related violence against women. She lives in Canada. This summary was prepared by Richa Kaul Padte, a writer, rapporteur, occasional editor and bass-music lover, who has lived in too many places to call a single one home.

The present report explores women’s experiences of and demands for corporate accountability in cases of technology-related violence against women (VAW) as highlighted by the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) seven-country research initiative, “End violence: Women's rights and safety online”, conducted in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Kenya, Mexico, Pakistan and the Philippines. Here, in-depth case studies on survivors’ experiences, their attempts to access justice, reviews of corporate policies, and interviews with public policy representatives have been evaluated with reference to: a) national telephony companies, b) social media and networking platforms, and c) pornography websites. A total of 24 case studies were documented across the seven countries, and the policies of 22 companies were reviewed.
