Abstract

In the past years, the instances of technology- related violence against women  in the Philippines has multiplied  that there is a heightened need for raising people’s  awareness on this worsening phenomenon. In fact, a study carried out from 2013 to 2014 by the Foundation for Media Alternatives or FMA looked into the  accounts of victims and survivors  of technology- based violence against women. The researchers investigated and traced different domestic legislations that mention  technology- driven violence against women.  It is saddening, however, that the result of the study shows that there is an obvious lack of local initiatives  and desk reviews that looks into  the official and corporate policies that either provide or hinder redress to cases of cyber violence on women .


Thus, this material, which contains three chosen case accounts,  hopes to bridge the information gap by furnishing a compilation of case scenarios that focus on the isolated experiences of selected female informants regarding technology- related violence. In addition to that, each case also reveals how  how the national court  system helps the victims  to gain legal justice and to penalize their offenders according to the law.  This material hopes to advocate and strengthen the development of effective legal remedies and corporate policies across the country.
