Sexual rights

Action Steps: A decade of civil society advocacy in the information society

The purpose of this review was to look back over the past decade of country reports published in Global Information Society Watch (GISWatch) and attempt to identify trends in civil society perspectives on what needed to be done to create a people-centred information society. The period for analysis was, more accurately, just over a decade: 2007-2017, during which a GISWatch report was produced each year – a total of 11 reports.

2015 - Les droits sexuels et l'internet

Cette édition de l'OMSI présente des témoignages du monde entier sur la place de l'internet dans l'activisme des droits sexuels et du sexe au moment d'établir leurs orientations politiques. Nous voulons étudier les façons dont les identités sexuelles généralement acceptées et les sexualités marginalisées s'expriment, sont réglementées et moralisées sur l'internet. Nous voulons également montrer le lien avec les menaces de surveillance, la censure et la violence en ligne.

2015 - Derechos sexuales e internet

Esta edición de GISWatch presenta relatos de todo el mundo sobre cómo se realiza el activismo digital en políticas y derechos sexuales. El objetivo es descubrir cómo son aceptadas así como marginadas las identidades sexuales, cómo se expresan, regulan y moralizan en internet. También busca mostrar cómo se relaciona esto con las amenazas de vigilancia, censura y violencia digital.

Click “I agree”: Consent and feminism in commercial pornography

Introduction

Adult video production is often regarded as controversial and culturally taboo. Due to social stigma concerning sexuality, including criminalisation and institutionalised offences prohibiting pornography, its industry remains largely unregulated and under-researched.

APC & Hivos

When the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) first raised the issue of internet content regulation and how it impacts on sexuality, in internet governance and policy spaces, we focused on building understanding that sexuality is a critical component of freedom of expression. APC, along with Hivos and our respective partners, challenged the assumption that sex was always about porn, and that porn was always bad.
