We know it’s tough to be a woman online, especially right now. At this time of a global health crisis, we are spending much more time in digital spaces. We are meeting up with our family and friends on Zoom and Friday night wines now consistent of staring into our laptops (wine consumption is definitely on the up too!) With our office spaces now in our home, cups of tea with colleagues and team meetings now happen in a virtual setting. It can be stressful and sometimes overwhelming to keep in touch with those we love, the news and work colleagues in this new and unchartered world. And living in this new world is compounded with the challenging world that so many women navigate online already. This is the world where 20% of young women living in the EU have experienced sexual harassment online, where women hold back their opinions because they are afraid of criticism and where so often, marginalised women’s voices are not heard.
With thanks to the Women’s Fund for Scotland, this June and July we are bringing you a brand new webinar series: Being a Woman Online. Each session will explore what it’s like being a woman online, how you can look after yourself and how you can use your voice to speak out when you see discrimination and harassment.
This series will feature three sessions that will run once in June and then in July. Please note this is a safe space for women only, inclusive of trans and intersex women, non-binary and gender fluid people.
