Association for Progressive Communication Women's Networking Support
Programme (APC WNSP) and Violence is not our Culture (VNC)

http://www.violenceisnotourculture.org/files/Strategising%20Online%20Activism.pdf

While this toolkit has been designed primarily for the local partners and activists of the VNC campaign, this can be a resource, too, for human rights activists who are keen to develop their  online activism and want to know where and how to start. The toolkit aims to impart the following skills:
- 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.
- The ability to develop an advocacy/communication strategy.
- Knowing what social neworking is and the various spaces and tools they could use in their
online activism.
- An understanding of online privacy and security issues relevant to building their online
activism.

WOMEN'S RIGHTS AND THE INTERNET AT THE HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL

http://www.genderit.org/articles/womens-rights-and-internet-human-rights-council

For the first time, the role of the internet on the right to freedom
of opinion and expression is being reported at the 17th session of the
UN Human Rights Council. This signals a clear recognition that the
increasing prevalence of the internet in all aspect of our lives is
becoming impossible to ignore, and that it is becoming pivotal in the
realisation of our fundamental rights and freedoms. At the same
session, the UN Special Rapporteur on violence against women is also
presenting her report on violence against women, its causes and
consequences. The synchronicity of both reports, especially given the
fact that human rights are universal, interdependent and indivisible,
calls for a close reading to identify the points of connection that
can be built in the effort to recognise, analyse and address
violations that affect the recognition, protection and fulfilment of
women's human rights.
