From fear to courage: Talking about technology, violence and justice in Mexico

Florencia Goldsman on 23 Nov 2015
An interview by Florencia Goldsman with research report author Gabriela Polanco and APC’s project coordinator in Mexico Erika Smith explores many of the nuances that emerged from the research. From assessing to what extent technology is an enabler of violence to musing on the various meanings of ‘justice’ for survivors, this conversation takes us behind the scenes of the Mexican edition of the End violence: Women's rights and safety online project.

Mexico: Exploring technology-related violence against women

on 23 Nov 2015
Welcome to the fourth in a series of 7 mini-editions we’re putting together to highlight the project “End violence: Women’s rights and safety online”. Each edition focuses on one country in which the research was conducted, and brings together articles, major findings, and interviews with the research teams. In this edition we look at Mexico, where legislation often doesn’t translate into practice, anonymity serves as a double-edged sword, and violence against women is routinely belittled. The stories of four women survivors form the backbone of the research, and it is through their voices and experiences that we explore how technology-related violence against women in Mexico plays out.

It was a bit like ping-pong - reporters, activists, and representatives from civil society organisations in a hot debate on privacy in Facebook. Some pointed out how Facebook (FB) from its inception is designed to encourage giving up your innermost secrets – or at least your relationship status. That privacy configurations change frequently on FB and it's hard to keep up or understand the implications of a change.

Kateřina Fialová on 2 Jun 2010
María Isabel and María Alejandra Davidziuk compare the findings of four national reports from Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and Colombia undertaken as part of the APC WNSP project “Strengthening women’s strategic use of ICTs to combat violence against women and girls”. In their analysis they look at some barriers (both institutional and cultural) that need to be overcome in order for ICTs to be successfully used to decrease violence against women and girls.
