Date of Publication
September, 2014

Without My Consent, a nonprofit organization that seeks to combat online invasion of privacy and empower individuals to stand up for their privacy rights, recently released the findings of its survey about online harassment. Although this survey focused on online harassment in general, a large focus of the organization's work is nonconsensual pornography, sometimes referred to as "revenge porn."

Without My Consent's definition of this includes "the nonconsensual publication of explicit images as a way to emotionally abuse, sexually exploit, and rob people of control over their own bodies." In other words, using technology as a tool of sexual violence.
