The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) is running a cinema series this year and the next installation in that series happens tomorrow with the screening of Netizens. In addition to the film screening, there will also be a panel discussion with Stephanie MacLellan, TK Pritchard (SASC), and Det. Constable Sandor Illes (WRPS).
The film explores the many forms of digital abuse through sharing the stories of three women who have had personal experiences with this issue. As noted on the film's website: "Netizens delves into the lives of three women whose lives have been transformed by online harassment: Carrie Goldberg, an attorney who launches an internet privacy and sexual assault law firm in the wake of her own cyber harassment; Tina Reine, a successful businesswoman whose career is derailed after an ex-boyfriend creates numerous reputation-harming websites; and Anita Sarkeesian, the creator of a popular web-series, “Feminist Frequency,” critiquing representations of women in video games, who is the target of a cyber-mob’s ongoing campaign of rape and death threats."
The movie will be shown in the CIGI campus auditorium (67 Erb St W) for free on April 30th at 7pm. If interested, you can register here. #365ofgoodWR
