For example, journalist and Nobel peace prize laureate Maria Ressa continues to be trolled en masse as a "presstitute" and hundreds of other women journalists have been threatened with the spread of super-imposed pornographic photos or other sordid images for speaking back to power. As women's equal right to freedom of expression is indispensable for media freedom and the achievement of peace, democracy and sustainable development, this session explores how gendered disinformation is a defining challenge and part of a systemic problem with our current digital infrastructures-social media platforms, search engines, internet cables, app stores, and amongst other components.
