Our Mission
We are calling for the adoption of a universal digital rights framework,
rooted in human rights law and underpinned by an intersectional feminist,
anti-discrimination analysis.

We therefore propose a set of Digital Principles, developed to inform
global efforts towards a digital future in which everyone can enjoy equal
rights to safety, freedom, and dignity.

These focus on women, girls, and other people from discriminated-against
groups, who experience intersecting forms of violence, oppression, and
discrimination in the real world. Because it is only when the most
vulnerable in society are protected that we are all safe.
