Together, we can change the online world.

We know we can - our community’s campaigning led to women & girls finally being named in the Online Safety Bill after SIX YEARS of speaking up! We have an opportunity, together, to use this important new research to make a real difference for Black women online, and we hope you will be a part of that change.

Black women's safety online MATTERS

Research titled “The Digital Misogynoir Report: Ending the dehumanising of Black women on social media” from Glitch is the first to examine digital misogynoir across multiple online platforms. We found that Black women are vulnerable to disproportionate levels of online abuse, that misogynoir underpins other forms of white supremacist violence, and that there are concrete steps that we can all take (and call for) to ensure accountability and an end to online abuse.

Despite Black women speaking about this reality for years, not enough has changed - and all too often, Black women’s safety is seen as too “niche” to merit funding and support - despite not being niche whatsoever, as an inability to ensure Black women's safety harms all communities online. We know that Black women’s safety is not just a ‘nice to have’, but an essential to safety for everyone online - and that there is a loud and proud community who will speak up, contribute, and spread the message that it is time we end misogynoir online.

So we’re raising funds to do what we do best - take these issues to the top tables of big tech and government to put the pressure on, and bring the tools to you to be as safe as possible in the meantime.

Where do my donations go?

Your support will contribute to the implementation of the research recommendations, including:

- A tech accountability campaign to put pressure on mainstream and alternative tech platforms to address misogynoir through policy & practice, publicly

- Development of a practical toolkit to support your community to end misogynoir online, sharing key questions to ask and actions we can take

- Distribution of the report, ensuring these findings reach Black women to provide an evidence base for their experiences, and allies to step up and challenge these harms

- Furthering awareness of misogynoir online with an explicitly intersectional approach

Your contribution, no matter how big or small, will make a difference. Let's work together to end the dehumanisation of Black women online - for good.
