On 3 May join Communication Is Your Right! and the GenderIT.org's sister project Take Back the Tech! for a global action day to defend our right to freely access, use, engage and share information and opinions and become our own media through information and communication technologies (ICT).
Women’s voices, representation in media spaces and opportunity to make a living creating media is continually marginalised. Women and girls are facing particular barriers to using ICT for communication. This ranges from disparity in access to technology and decision-making positions, to technology-related violence against women such as harassment, online monitoring and identity theft that create a hostile and violent online environment for women and girls.
Please encourage your networks, family and friends to take part in the action items for this year's World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd.
