Toolkit: Youth Guide To End Online Gender-Based Violence


In an era where digital footprints define our existence, online gender-based violence (OGBV) and Technology Facilitated OGBV (TFGBV) cast a long, oppressive shadow on the freedom and safety of women, girls, and gender-diverse individuals. It's more than a personal struggle; it's a societal battle that widens the gender digital divide and threatens our collective march towards a just, equitable world.

The Youth Guide To End Online Gender-Based Violence toolkit is an actionable learning and knowledge product developed by the 30 for 2030 Network, a youth and civil society leadership cohort in the Asia-Pacific region supported by UN Women. The toolkit is a downloadable PDF, designed to be easily accessible for anyone to read and utilize to raise awareness.

The toolkit has been created for:

  • Youth.
