Context and motivations Online harassment and threats against women activists, rights defenders and journalists has become a prevelant issue in recent years. For many of these groups and individuals, using the internet and social media for work must all too frequently be balanced against harassment, threats and surviellance by both state and non-state actors.

There are a growing number of resources to prevent different kinds of online harassment faced by women working as activists, human rights defenders or journalists. But what happens during or ‘the day after’ an attack? And then what happens after the more urgent crisis phase(s) of a campaign of harassment passes? There is little documententation and few resources that tackle these issues.

As a result, we are proposing to facilitate a workshop that brings in the input of the community of activists, journalists and digital security trainers to help develop guides on tackling harassment such as account hijacking, doxing or revenge porn. The work conducted during workshop will help develop guides and manuals that can be used by activists, women rights defenders, journalists and Rapid Responders to deal with harassment and threats as they happen.
