The position paper presented y by Jac sm Kee from APC WNSP at Women Claiming The Information Society (WOCTIS), 11 September 2005, Berlin.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) approval of .xxx as a global top level domain for sexually explicit materials in the internet received murmurs of protest from several governments, particularly from Brazil and the United States. In the discussions raised about this case, many ICT policy advocates and experts stated that with or without .xxx, pornography will continue to exist and flourish on the internet, and centred their concerns around the undue government intervention and influence on a supposedly independent body.
How do gender, and women’s rights advocates intervene within this debate? When we are calling for freedom of expression and information, who is it for, and who often gets unheard in the decision-making processes?
