Describe your workshop/presentation (300-500 words): 
As we all know these days most of us have easy access to the internet and with it, social medias. Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is not new, and unfortunately it has spread to the online sphere. Bullying, sexting, and platform policies (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) to care for their users are issues that are truly alarming. Since most people have access to social network we consider it a worldwide problem especially for the younger generation. In the first half of the workshop, we will outline the ways and forms of violence experienced by women and girls online. Moving on, there will be an interactive session for all attendees to propose solutions to counter against these incidents.
