BCSTH Launches the Technology-Facilitated Gender Based Violence Report

89% of BC’s anti-violence workers report having supported service users through experiences Technology-Facilitated Gender-Based Violence (TFGBV).  TFGBV occurs when digital spaces and devices are intentionally used to harass, abuse and or exploit others based on gender and/or sexuality.

In August 2021, the BC Society of Transition Houses surveyed British Columbia’s anti-violence programs to get a better understanding of the prevalence of TFGBV experienced by women, children and youth accessing anti-violence programs. The survey results summarize the scope and method of TFGBV experienced by women accessing anti-violence programs in BC and provides recommendations and discussion about the needs of women, children, youth and anti-violence workers when responding to TFGBV.
