1. Research Report on Cyber Violence Against Women in India

In India, as elsewhere in the world, online harassment of women and marginalized genders and sexualities is rampant, in contrast to Internet’s initial premise of equal opportunity and neutrality. What we have today is a flawed internet that reflects the offline world we live in, where women and marginalized communities are abused, harassed, threatened, stalked and violated on a daily basis. This research report aims to analyse the unique threats that women and marginalized sections in India face online and how Indian laws affect these problems.

This research is part of Freedom House‘s Hyperlinkers project, which seeks to amplify the voices of marginalized communities in global digital rights discussions.
