Gender violence is a pervasive global issue that demands urgent attention and action. Social media platforms have emerged as powerful tools in the fight against this form of violence, providing opportunities for awareness raising, advocacy, and support. It enables individuals and organizations to share information, personal stories, and resources related to gender violence. It serves as a platform for survivors to break their silence, share their experiences, and find solidarity. Social media campaigns raise public awareness, challenge societal norms, and encourage discussions surrounding gender-based violence, fostering a sense of collective responsibility. Social media plays a crucial role in the fight against gender violence, providing a space for survivors, activists, and advocates connecting and educating. This chapter explores the role of social media in the fight against gender violence, focusing on its impact on awareness raising, survivor support, and community mobilization.
