Submitted by on 08/06/2011 16 Comments

The Association for Progressive Communication Women’s Networking Support Programme and Violence is Not Our Culture have published a toolkit called Strategising Online Activism. The toolkit wants to help foster “an understanding of why and how information and communication technologies (ICTs) can be appropriated by women’s rights and human rights groups in their advocacy skills through their use of online tools, including networking and mobile tools for advocacy and campaigning.”

  • Strategising Online Activism -a nice instrument to promote women human rights. To decrease the risk probability it is also helpful as I think . To make networking as a strong advocasy tool through Strategising Online Activism , may be a good combination.
    But as women of Bangladesh , I see poverty in all sense make women poorer to poorest , it needs tools , it needs support -physical -a solid resource -may be skill,culture, money , support , all – all and finally education …Strategising Online Activism may collect all these for our poorest women in Bangladesh -Organization for Women’s Development in Bangladesh is working for this from 1995 for cultural and economic empowerment of the organization and grass root partners –our loving women members , I hope all of you can join with usas a volunteer , as a supporter to sharpen the Strategising Online Activism tools , you most welcome to OWDEB , Bangladesh, As Chief Executive of OWDEB , me Shyamoli Mazumder will be very happy , if you stay with us for OWDEB.

    with love

    As a woman, i support the idea that violence is not our culture.I do thank the association for progressive communications networking prgramme for introducing this programme.ICT’s and mobile tools help a lot to women because they are going to use them as communication tools. It is going to be easier for any woman to quickly communicate if ever she is in trouble. One can either use a phone to call the police or use the internet if time permits. So, its very important for any woman to have a cell phone or have e-mail addresses of relatives and friends.

    Women may form groups or women associations so that if one is in trouble she can inform the association through internet or by phoning, so, that the group can report the issue to the police if the victim is not able to meet the group. May be the victim is locked up and is under victimisation.

    This merely promoting neo-colonialism. You’ll pay in the end even if it is after centuries!

  • This proves to be a great tool that is going to help amplify women voices. Women’s groups in Botswana are not skilled in advocacy so this is a positive move.

  • ISPH says:

    Its nice work though……….would really appreciate….In my part of the world the net users are so less….that !

  • Millicent Adede says:

    Action for Children Development Centre is a child centred organization working in Western Kenya and promotes the rights of children. I think this is a good idea that will help like minded organizations share ideas and network. Bravo!!

  • Gender inequality or disparity and violence of gender rights is oftenly encounter globally.
