Innovative Technologies Help Combat GBV

Can technology help prevent and respond to GBV, particularly in low- and middle-income countries?

As part of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence, the Interagency Gender Working Group, U.S. Agency for International Development, Woodrow Wilson Center, CARE, and Population Reference Bureau hosted a panel discussion on December 9 exploring new technologies to combat GBV. How effective are they, and what are some of the more ethical, practical, and actionable ways forward? Panelists discussed how these technologies can be used in various aspects of gender-based violence, from sexual assault in conflict areas to intimate partner violence in India and in the United States.
