تهدید زنان در دنیای انترنیتی بخشی از خشونت علیه زنان می باشد

The abuse of Internet space is part of the gender based violence (GBV), in which information technology (ICT) is used as a tool to threaten and impose violence against women and even to encourage others to harm them.

The latest statistics from the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) show that women in developing countries are 33 percent less likely to have access to the Internet than men, the underlying cause of which is the threat of online use.

Learning and research using the knowledge, experiences, technology and resources are the fundamental rights of women, which helps them to improve their lives.

Shahzad Aryobee, Minister of Communications and Information Technology, assured of taking practical steps towards the development of cybercrime laws, women's safety and practical measures for protecting women's rights.

The Ministry of Communications and IT calls on the citizens of the country and the media to work for public awareness and respect the rights of women so that we can jointly create a harmless environment for women in the country.
