Cybercrime: What’s gender got to do with it? A look at the evidence.

As  Judy Wajcman (2010), argues in her Feminist Theories of Technology, “technology . . . is neither inherently patriarchal nor unambiguously liberating” (p. 148), but women’s lived experience of technology frame an intrinsically gendered phenomenon. The last three decades have seen the emergence and rapid spread of access to and use of the internet and multiple forms of electronic media in Europe and elsewhere.  For good or ill, the penetration of such media into our public and private lives has inevitably expanded the field of gender-based violence.

Domestic Abuse & Inequality

Scotland’s violence against women strategy (Equally Safe), underpinned by 40+ years of feminist analysis and the Women’s Aid movement, tells us that domestic abuse is a cause and consequence of women’s inequality (Scotland’s VAWG causal story).  Widespread use of this truism is an historical accomplishment, but embedding policy and practice in this principle requires that we unpick how poverty, overrepresentation of men in public life, and VAW interact.

Exploring the Dynamics of Stalking

The phenomenon of stalking has been highlighted in Scotland with recent changes in legislation defining it as a specific crime. Despite this information about stalking in Scotland is scarce and those who suffer at the hands of a stalker often find their experiences minimised and misunderstood.
