HER Internet extends its unreserved gratitude to all the respondents who took part in the study. We are also indebted to our partners Global Fund for Women and the Equality Fund who worked closely with us during the study, from conception until completion.
This research is commissioned by HER Internet - a womxn-led organization established in 2018 to advocate for internet equalities for minority womxn in Uganda. HER Internet was set up to promote and protect the rights to freedom of expression, privacy, data protection and internet access of minority womxn.

In addition, the non-consensual sharing of private information and other forms of cybercrime, surveillance and censorship unduly target minority womxn because of their unique circumstances including; their sexual orientation, gender identity/expression and/or choice of work.
