“A lot of women have internalised this violence, or do not recognise hate speech as violence – it has become normal.” (paraphrased)
Further takeaways from this session: Digital security trainings shouldn’t only be based on fear, especially for activists who are already subject to threats and experience fear through their work.
Training shouldn’t be tools-centric, but need to involve the reasons why e.g. email encryption should be used.
There needs to be space for follow up.
And male trainers in particular need to recognise their privileges.
