The Chair for Digital Gender Gap, established between the Generalitat Valenciana (Valencian Government) and the Universitat de València, has released a series of videos that offer resources and the necessary support to raise awareness and combat the gender gap in the face of cyberbullying, cyberharrassment and social media hoaxes.

València 15 November The Chair for Digital Gender Gap of the UV and the Generalitat Valenciana (Valencian Government), financed by the Department of Innovation, Industry, Commerce and Tourism, has released a series of audiovisual episodes to raise awareness about the existing gender gap in cyberbullying, cyberharrassment and internet hoaxes or “fake news” by explaining how it occurs and providing tools to prevent it. This project surfaced thanks to different studies carried out by the Chair on the gender gap.

The Chair, in collaboration with designer Cirenia Arias has released two animated videos in which the gender gap inherent in cyberbullying, cyberharrassment and internet hoaxes is addressed. In addition to these animated videos that raise awareness from a didactic and amenable perspective, there are also two other videos created in collaboration with specialists Pilar Almenar and Laura Bellver, where specific tools are provided for facing and reducing the gap in these types of situations.

“The gap exists, but it’s invisible. If we don’t talk about it, it will continue in anonymity. At the Chair we know that the solution to this problem is to raise visibility, sensitivity and awareness. These are the three objectives that we aim to achieve through the circulation of these videos, which we hope will have an extensive reach,” explains the head of the Chair, Anabel Forte, Senior Professor at the UV.

These videos, which can be found on the Chair YouTube channel, show the possibility of raising visibility and training the general public to fight against cyberbullying, cyberharrassment and internet scams that disproportionately affect women.
