On March 9, 2023, Sanctuary hosted a ground-breaking forum where gender violence experts discussed technology-facilitated abuse, which includes but is not limited to the non-consensual dissemination, or threat of dissemination, of sexual images (sometimes referred to as “revenge porn”), hacking, stalking, spoofing, harassment, identity theft, and impersonation.
