Coalition Against Online Violence Mapping Report 2024
The Mapping Report, released by the International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF), provides an overview of the Coalition Against Online Violence (CAOV) and its member organizations. The report offers valuable insights on solutions for women journalists facing online abuse, harassment, and other forms of digital attack, collected through a series of interviews and email exchanges with CAOV members in May 2023. The report covers a wide range of digital safety strategies, including prevention, response, and support measures. It also highlights how the collective efforts of the CAOV strengthen the ecosystem of support for journalists and other individuals facing online violence.
The report encompasses diverse digital safety strategies across three key parts:
Part I of the Mapping Report introduces the CAOV, a collective of more than 80 members including press freedom and human rights organizations, civic tech companies, newsrooms, and research institutes.
Part II of the Mapping Report is structured around the five working groups within the CAOV: assistance, research and knowledge sharing; newsrooms advocacy; platforms advocacy; and, legal/regulations advocacy.
Part III of the Mapping Report provides an overview of recommendations for journalists, media organizations, platforms, platform users, and activists based on the input from CAOV member organizations.
