Call for chapters : gender – based cyber violence


To discover the sheer iteration of such burgeoning criminal behavior in the cyberspace, especially the ones targeting women and children.

Such behavior is no longer limited to plain harassment but has rather manifested itself into pernicious forms like rape-threats, doctored imagery, disclosing addresses of women thus fomenting risks of real-life harassment, etc.
