Project title “Women’s Rights Online: A research and Policy Advocacy Initiative on Women’s Empowerment through the Web”
Project phase II commissioned by the World Wide Web Foundation (December 15, 2016 – December 31, 2017)
The outcome of the first phase of this project was a research report that investigated the state of women’s rights online in Uganda and 10 other African countries. The research aims is to work with policy makers in closing the gender digital gap in Uganda.
This second phase of this project seeks engagement with policy makers (legislators), technical experts within Government MDAs and media in Uganda to raise awareness, build capacity, instigate policy conversations, publicize current work in closing the gender gap online and further amplify the 5- point action plan for Uganda derived from the WRO study through a number of activities including policy sessions, meetings, capacity building and campaigns including social media.
