Hello Beth,

You left a comment on the post above! Thanks for the correction and linking to me. It is amazing that you've collected so many links in so short of a time.

Fancy: Thanks for adding the chain of links.


heya tooEmbarassedToSay,

i don't reckon ICTs *creates* violence against women as such. i think it gives it a new quality or dimension.

in terms of the traffickers question, yeah, i guess traffickers now can hide their tracks more efficiently, able to get a bigger market both for the subjects (customers) and objects (trafficked women), have a better way to manage their money issues etc etc etc. so in this sense, traffickers of women and girls are benefitting from ICTs the 'same' way that most privileged people who have access to ICTs do.

but at the same time, not just bodies are trafficked, but images as well. or bodies may be trafficked to one country, while images are trafficked to another (to avoid stricter laws related to trafficking from one place to another). what then does this mean? can the shuttling of images from one locale to another constitute trafficking? are we barking up the wrong tree? or do laws just have to change to adapt to the new 'conveniences' that ICTs bring to traffickers? has the definition of trafficking itself changed fundamentally?

i think these are the kinds of emerging connections that hasn't been completely unravelled yet. i guess this is what the campaign is aimed at doing..


Hello Beth,
... and tnx!
I think the number of names has increased even more by now.

How are You? And what is that "Grasshopper Media" you have on your blog?

(( hug ))
