Online harassment is an unfortunate reality for many Internet users, especially women. With this in mind, InternetNZ hosted a session looking at how harassment can be prevented, dealt with and have the harm it causes addressed.

The event featured:

  • Niels ten Oever - Head of Digital at Article 19
  • Ruth MacIntyre - Digital Media Advisor for Women's Refuge
  • Emily Writes - blogger and writer
  • Martin Cocker - Executive Director of NetSafe as the Approved Agency for the Harmful Digital Communications Act

Joy Liddicoat - Assistant Commissioner (Policy and Operations) for the Office of the Privacy Commissioner will MC the event.

The event took place on 8 September - both in Wellington and also online via live-stream. The video from the live-stream can be viewed here:
