#SayftyChat: Building the Women's Internet

This week (June 10, 2019) on our Twitter chat, #SayftyChat, we discussed “Building the Women’s Internet” with SHEROES. This week’s chat was focused on how to ensure online spaces are safe for women, and the different ways men and women use the internet.

We had participants join the chat from Nairobi, India, US, Canada, UK, Columbia, and South Africa.

Questions discussed

  1. Do you consider the internet a safe space for women? Why or why not?
  2. How do we encourage more women to use the internet and reclaim online space?
  3. How do we ensure safe online spaces for women?
  4. What do you enjoy most about being online? What’s your least favorite thing?
  5. Men and women have different online spaces. What are the challenges women face?

If you missed the twitter chat on Building the Women’s Internet, here is the recap:

#SayftyChat is a weekly, hour-long, Twitter chat created by Sayfty to explore topics related to women’s safety and prevention of violence against women. So every Monday at 11:00 am ET, we invite an organization/guest that joins us in raising awareness on women’s issues. We field questions to them and to you, the #SayftyChat community. Together, we answer these questions and engage in a dialogue on topics related to women’s safety and ending violence against women.
