The Association for Progressive Communications Women’s Rights Programme (APC WRP) is a programme of the Association for Progressive Communications (APC). APC was founded 21 years ago and has consultative status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). APC is both a network and an organisation whose strategic priorities are informed by our members. Our mission is to empower and support organisations, social movements and individuals in and through the use of information and communication technologies. The WRP community consists of over 175 women’s rights activists from 35 countries working to integrate ICTs in transforming gender and social relations. WRP’s projects focus on the use of ICTs in combating violence against women online and offline. We partner with women human rights defenders to document trends, lobby for internet rights through the Human Rights Commission and international forums and training activists to use the internet securely.
