In 2012, the United Nations issued a resolution on the Promotion, Protection and Enjoyment of Human Rights on the Internet, one of which acknowledged that expressions delivered online received the same protection as offline expression activities. But countless women still experience fear and are threatened when using their freedom of expression rights on the Internet. Female journalists, for example, were recorded to have many negative experiences with online expression.
This is one of the reasons why the Workshop on Teaching Gender in Journalism and Media Studies was held.
