The campaign, titled ‘Actually, It’s not true! – Unmasking online gender-based violence myths’ focuses on dispelling false beliefs that perpetuate harmful stereotypes in the digital space. Online gender-based violence, including cyberbullying, harassment, doxxing, and revenge porn, thrives due to internet anonymity and rapid information dissemination. The choice of this topic and title is rooted in the belief that raising awareness is a crucial first step toward change.
The goal is to challenge common myths that downplay online gender-based violence, emphasising its emotional, psychological, and physical toll on victims. By shedding light on misconceptions, the campaign aims to prompt conversations, encourage critical self-reflection, and inspire collective action.
