The sexual and reproductive rights agenda represents one of the most promising and threatened fields in the fight for the full emancipation of women and against the discrimination of the LGBTI. The research proposal inquires the role of the internet of things’, in particular of the digital technology and the web app, in guaranteeing and exercising sexual and reproductive rights, with particular emphasis on the situation of women (including, of course, lesbians and trans). The research aims to map the kinds of tools that have been proposed to guarantee those rights (e.g., about sexual education or apps that can provide some help in cases of sexual violence), and then it analyses its uses and the gender and sexual representations, along with their constitutional challenges.
