United Nations Population Fund Executive Director, Natalia Kanem has said on a daily basis more people, services, and activities are moving online and this increases the risk of digital violence happening to more women and girls. Kanem said though that digital violence is driving women offline because they cannot otherwise escape from it. “When girls interrupt their education or elected women parliamentarians cannot carry out their duties because of a torrent of online assaults, they suffer violations of their rights,” she said, adding that due to this “we all lose their capabilities and leadership in our societies”.
