Tech Companies Put Onus On Women To Protect Themselves From Cyber Crime
The rapid development of new technologies often outpaces its thoughtful application. According to new research from the University of Pennsylvania, new tech and the apps that go along with it have consequences for women’s safety, both positive and negative.
In 2015, a United Nations report claimed that nearly 75% of female Internet users had experienced gender-based hostility online, ranging from harassment to threats of physical violence. Apps make it even easier for partners, acquaintances, and strangers to harass women. However, smartphones and wearable devices with location tracking and emergency notifications can also help protect women from violent interactions.
Some assert that cyber violence actually might be more damaging than in-person abuse because it has a wide audience, can be anonymous, and is insufficiently regulated.
But the key message here is that while technology can enhance women’s safety, online information typically puts “the onus on women to protect themselves from abuse.” According to the researchers:
About one-third of the protection articles discussed using technology to prevent cyber-stalking and nearly all emphasized how women should alter their use of technology to defend against the abuse. Few addressed the responsibility of tech companies to reduce the problem of misuse.
If technology and policy are truly going to protect women from violence, they must abandon norms of victim blaming and putting the responsibility of protection on women and instead target the people who stalk as well as the tech companies whose devices and software can easily be exploited to harm women.
It should go without saying that it is never the responsibility of a victim to change their behavior to protect themselves from harassment or violence. While the responsibility for harassment rests on the perpetrator, tech companies can also work harder to recognize their role in perpetrating violence against their customers and find ways to denounce, block, and cooperate in the creation of new policies that protect everyone.
