Digitalization and violence against women

Ditialisation and its widespread use by citizens has given rise to a new relationship space and, also, a new space where crimes are committed. If we take into consideration that violent manifestations against women, just because they are women, do not cease, the virtual space was certainly not going to be an exception. Violence against women, considered a violation of human rights by the Istanbul Convention, has increased with the use of technology. The digital space boots the emergence and maintenance of situations of control that manifest themselves in criminal actions that affect legal assets such as privacy, dignity and moral integrity, in a much more virulent way in this space, and especially in relation to increasingly younger victims. The definition of what is understood by technological crime and which of them are not gender-neutral, and the delimitation of the concept of violence against women, is the essential objective of this intervention.
