With the opportunities the internet provides, the concept of ‘online harassment’ remains a challenge many people face every day. According to recent study, three-quarters of women who experienced abuse or harassment on social media have changed their online habits. In order to raise awareness about the importance of women’s safety in the online world, Google’s Women Tech Makers, a program that provides visibility, community, and resources for women in technology, is collaborating with Jigsaw, a unit within Alphabet that creates technology and research to keep our world safer, to gather global experts that could identify issues women face on the internet and launch activities that lead to a safer web experience.
