Technology Isn’t The Problem – Abuse Is 

Technology is one kind of tool among many that abusive partners use.

  • Technology can:
    • enhance and maintain safety 
    • decrease isolation –empower survivors 
  • Technology can also:
    • be used to exert power and control 
    • increase the severity of trauma a

A Survivor’s Right To Technology 

  • Getting rid of tech / going offline? Nope. 
  • Limiting victim’s behaviour or technology use will not stop the abuse or stalking. 
  • Place accountability with the offender for misusing tech, not the victim for being on Facebook, dating site, etc. 
  • Avoiding the internet is not possible; but having better privacy and safety is.
