Jigsaw is a Google team that explores threats to open societies and builds technology for scalable solutions. Our partnership enabled us to develop a significant and granular measurement of the global prevalence of online violence against women.
Findings from the study have been used in an open letter to tech giants such as Facebook and Twitter, signed by 200 prominent women including Julia Gillard, the former prime minister of Australia, Kathryn Sullivan, US astronaut and Graça Machel, Nelson Mandela’s widow. It has been posted on the World Wide Web Foundation and informed the Gender Equality Forum in Paris, which brought together governments, businesses, international organisations and civil society to make progress towards gender equality.
