Our Work

Research and Thought Leadership

Our original, ground-breaking research is the bedrock of our activity. It examines major gendered disinformation campaigns, especially those linked to authoritarianism, and seeks to ensure that this issue is recognized as a dangerous threat to democracy. Through our work, we aim to increase understanding of the real world, personal harm that disinformation causes to female politicians.

We use our research to influence high level conversations on democracy, technology, and women’s rights by working with some of the world’s leading media outlets and think tanks, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Brookings Institution, among others. 

We also ensure that our research reaches key decision-makers by participating in events, webinars, and roundtables with some of the most powerful stakeholders and institutions in this field, such as UN Women, the Inter-parliamentary Union, the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OCSE, Democracy Defenders Awards), the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES), Parlamericas, Apolitical, the High Commission of Canada in Singapore, the Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights, the German Marshall Fund, Demos, and the UN Generation Equality Forum, among others.
