Sign up for more information and to support the campaign to stamp out violent threats, misogyny and sexist abuse online. We will also be sending out information about the major conference we will be holding in the new year to bring women together to support the campaign and put forward practical ideas to bring about real change.
We're calling for women and men to stand together against violent threats online, misogyny and sexist abuse.
The internet is a powerful way to invigorate public life and must always be a forum for free speech and honest debate. Just as we do in our homes, on the streets, in the pub or at work, we all want to be free to express our anger, disagreement, contempt or strong views in an argument.
But also, just as we do in our homes, on the streets, in the pub or at work, we should challenge intimidation, misogyny, racism or threats, and we should challenge a culture which says persistent aggressive sexist abuse is OK.
Recl@im the internet is a forum for people to come together to debate what action is needed to tackle misogyny online. In the new year we will be holding a major conference to discuss what more can be done. We will cover a range of issues including:
What action is needed against violent threats, hate crime and stalking online - including standards there should be for the police, prosecutors and media platforms?
What action is needed to support people who are targeted by online abuse, sexism or bullying?
What voluntary action should organisations take to set standards for their members - including political parties, campaign groups, employers, trade unions?
What action should individuals take when faced with abuse - responding, reporting, shaming or ignoring?
What is needed to prevent the next generation thinking online misogyny is OK?
Recl@im the Internet will be an online resource and forum, with national and regional events for women and men to come together to debate what action we need to reclaim the new public spaces for all. Sign up if you want more information, have ideas on what needs to be done or want to join the campaign in the New Year.
