The meeting reinforces the coordinated action on the island in the face of gender-based cyber-violence.
A total of 37 professionals from care services attached to the Network of Services for the Prevention, Care and Shelter of Women and Minors Victims of Gender Violence in Gran Canaria attended the training meeting of the Island Service for the Prevention and Care of Gender-based Cyber-violence (SIPACM), coordinated by the organisation Opciónate and financed by the Department of Equality of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria.
The event took place at the Casa-Museo Pérez Galdós in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and provided an opportunity for joint reflection on the main forms of male chauvinist cyber-violence and possible ways of dealing with them. The day included debates on experiences, good practices and difficulties encountered.
The training was conceived from a holistic and multidisciplinary point of view that combined psychological, legal, preventive, cybersecurity and digital feminist self-defence knowledge with the aim of dealing with cybercrime and gender-based cyber-violence malpractice from the different areas of social impact and fields of action and thus improving intervention from the different care services.
