This category recognizes the gendered impact of digital technology, and aims to support increased visibility of women in the digital world. From the digital inclusion of women and the use of internet platforms to advocate for gender equality, the spread of online harassment and hate speech against women continues to persist. Organizations must be able to demonstrate how proposals will change the prevailing negative narratives of women in online spaces, and galvanize the potential for digital technology as a tool for Women, Peace and Security.
The proposed initiative must further:
- Demonstrate clear link of how digital technology can be invoked to address WPS concerns;
- Explore how identified technology can effectively bring forth women’s voices in the public discourse; and
- Have key beneficiaries of the project at both local and national levels.
