Protecting privacy is (y)our business. We want to end image-based sexual abuse.

Image-based sexual abuse causes serious harms

Thousands fall victim to ‘revenge porn’ every year. These are mostly young women, but it can happen to anyone. Image-based sexual abuse is not criminalised in most countries. A major issue is the common nature: so many people don’t take issue with it or blame the victim. Examples are plentiful: over 2000 Dutch and Belgian men shared more than 30.000 private images of women and girls on a private forum. Hundreds of celebrities were faced with ibsa in 2014 when their images were stolen and published during ‘the Fappening’. This is a worldwide privacy-crisis like nothing we’ve seen before. The Internet knows no borders, and tackling image-based sexual abuse is made more difficult by its novel nature. ‘Revenge pornography’ is recognised as sexual abuse by the United Nations.
