Let’s hack online harassment and misogyny!

What is this workshop about?

We will discuss forms of online harassment and some of the socio-technical “solutions” that are out there to address it (such as content moderation, blocking, chat bots, toxicity models etc.).

We then use the collaborative method of consequence scanning to think about what’s at stake when designing and building tools against online harassment. This method allows us to carefully consider intended and unintended consequences of the tools we create, and thus helps us become more aware of our own biases and avoid re-traumatising those affected by online harassment and misogyny.


Who is this workshop for?

Anyone of any gender who is interested in hacking online harassment and misogyny is welcome to participate. No prior knowledge of consequence scanning is required.

We want to make this an inclusive workshop, i.e. a welcoming and respectful space where sexist, racist, transphobic, homophobic, ableist and any other form of discriminatory language and behaviour or unwanted physical contact is not acceptable.


Content warning

We are hacking online harassment and misogyny. That means we will be brainstorming instances/forms of harassment and think through some intended and unintended consequences of tools that try to mitigate its effects.

While we will not show any violent content on screen, please be aware that upsetting examples, including sexist, racist, transphobic and other forms discriminatory language may come up in conversation.
