Girlguiding marks Safer Internet Day 2022

by | Jan 23, 2022

Join Girlguiding advocates, violence against women and girls (VAWG) experts, Maria Miller MP and Caroline Nokes MP to discuss what changes Girlguiding want to see in the upcoming Online Safety Bill.

Our Girls’ Attitudes Survey shows there is a long way to go to keep girls and young women safe online. In 2021, we found that seven out of ten girls and young women aged 7 to 21 have experienced some form of harmful content online in the last year – from hate speech and sexism to harassment and unwanted sexual or rude pictures. 

That’s why we’re calling on change-makers to guarantee online safety laws protect girls and young women from harm online. We want to see the Online Safety Bill include cyber violence against girls and young women. We also want social media and tech companies take responsibility for content on their platforms.  

Tune in to hear change-makers and policy experts, including Girlguiding members, talk about how we can make sure this important law keeps girls and young women safe.

Login from 9.50 for a 10am start. This call is due to run for 45 minutes.

Please email advocacy@girlguiding.org.uk with any questions you want to submit in advance, or add below if you are ready. Do get in touch if you need any more information or you have any requirements we can help with.

Date: Wednesday 9th February 2022

Time: 10:00 – 10:45 (login from 09:45)
