Technology facilitated Sexual Violence

Technology-facilitated sexualized violence refers to a spectrum of activities and behaviours that involve technology as a central aspect of perpetuating sexualized violence, abuse, or harassment, including but not limited to social media and messaging platforms, digital cameras, and dating apps.

Activities that fall under the umbrella of technology-facilitated sexualized violence include the following:

  • Doxing (sharing personal information online without consent and with the intent to harm)
  • Swatting (making false reports so that police or emergency services are sent to someone’s home)
  • Hate speech
  • Threats and intimidation
  • Trolling
  • Voyeurism
  • Impersonation
  • Spying and monitoring through account hacking or interception of private communications
  • Online mobbing
  • Sexual exploitation resulting from online luring
  • Defamation
  • Non-consensual distribution of intimate images
  • Image-based abuse, including both deep fakes and shallow fakes
  • Sexual harassment
  • Use of a digital platform/device to coerce a victim into an unwanted sexual act
  • Sextortion
  • Stalking/cyberstalking
  • Sharing live streams, videos, or images of sexual assaults

This list of behaviours is not exhaustive and deliberately extends beyond the scope of how technology-facilitated sexualized violence is defined in current academic literature. (Research is currently lagging behind the lived experiences of survivors in describing the behaviours that can occur within the scope of technology-facilitated sexualized violence.)
