Want to move beyond headlines to an in-depth conversation on the issue? Keen to have meaningful discussions on what would it take to address gender-based cyber violence?

The National Dialogue is the space for you.

The National Dialogue on Gender-based Cyber Violence seeks to move beyond sensationalism, and enable a systematic stocktaking of the issue from a feminist standpoint, through panel discussions with leading scholar-practioners, student presentations, and creative student-led events.
