Berkman Klein Event Series: Marginalized Women, Technology, COVID-19, and Intimate Partner Violence
February 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Marginalized Women, Technology, COVID-19, and Intimate Partner Violence
IS THERE A VACCINE FOR OUR PANDEMIC?
Increasingly, marginalized women are opting against calling the police in response to intimate partner violence (IPV). Many report going to faith communities and online platforms to seek help — especially since COVID-19 policies were implemented. This event brings together practitioners and experts in law, psychology, technology, religion, communication, and ethics to discuss the concerns specific to intimate partner violence. Is there potential for a public sphere online that can assist victims in surviving their unique suffering?
This event will be recorded. Video and audio will be available soon after.
