“We seek to make visible and denormalize, for example, that young women between 18 and 30 years of age are the most attacked in digital spaces; likewise, at least every five minutes, some of them suffer a form of attack: trolling , exchanging intimate photos without consent, insinuations and sexual content without requesting it , insults and threats, among other variants ”, comment the organizers.

Through talks, interviews, music and stand-ups, they will discuss digital rights and obtaining safe spaces; the responsibility that social networks, such as Twitter and Facebook, have with their users; on digital mobilization and security; discrimination, racism and machismo on the web; also regarding cybersexuality, virtual beauty standards and psychological consequences, prevention and attention to cybercrime, among other topics.
