A pre-consultation meeting was organised in Bangalore in January 2017 to review our discussion paper, 'Technology-mediated Violence against Women in India: How can we strengthen existing legal-institutional response mechanisms?'. A group of feminist scholars and practitioners came together at this meeting to debate the questions raised by this paper, and brainstorm on strategic directions to take forward on the issue of technology-mediated violence against women.

Participants:

1. Bishakha Datta, Point of View
2. Donna Fernandes, Pushpa Achanta and Disha, Vimochana

3. Flavia Agnes, Majlis Legal Centre
4. Geeta Ramaseshan, Senior Lawyer, Madras High Court
5. Namita Aavriti, Association for Progressive Communications

6. Anita Gurumurthy, Parminder Jeet Singh, Amrita Vasudevan, and Nandini Chami, IT for Change

The draft paper that was tabled has been revised to incorporate comments from the consultation. The revised version is available at http://www.itforchange.net/technology-mediated-VAW-India
