Tilwate Peace Network is producing a dedicated study on Sahelian women in online spaces in partnership with the Bamako Forum on Digital and Social Cohesion. Based on a literature review and key informant interviews with women in Burkina Faso, Niger and Mali about their online experiences, this paper provides insight into the safety of online spaces for women and how online spaces can better serve them as key actors in peace consolidation. The study proposes recommendations to multilateral organizations, government authorities and policy-makers, tech companies, educational institutions and advocacy organizations on how to improve equitable access to the internet while promoting policies that encourage women’s participation and protect them from harassment and abuse.
