Our Work


Our original, ground-breaking research is the bedrock of our activity. It examines the patterns, motives, and modus operandi of major gendered disinformation campaigns and their links to the undermining of democracy and women’s rights globally. We use our research to increase understanding of the real-world, personal harm that disinformation causes to women politicians, as well as influence high-level conversations on democracy, technology, and women’s rights.

The Monetizing Misogyny research series explores how gendered disinformation is weaponized to undermine women’s political participation, and to weaken democratic institutions and human rights. Crucially, it also looks at the responsibilities of digital platforms and outlines the solutions needed to address this problem.
