webwise.ca is designed by young women for young women, to combat and counter the growing culture of cyber sexual violence. Its focus is on gender based violence, cyber tips, cyber bullying, slut shaming, victim blaming and human trafficking. This website promises to be a great resource for young women, parents/guardians, social workers, teachers, guidance counselors and the concerned public.

Inspired by the real-life stories of Rehtaeh Parsons, Amanda Todd, and Audrie Pott, and the common experience of many young women in Canada, this website is the result of a year-long city-wide research project exploring cyber safety, and the needs of young women to address safety issues online.

The website is a collaboration between St. Stephen’s Community House, METRAC – Action on Violence and East Metro Youth Services, nine young women peer researchers with lived experience, and is funded by the Status of Women, Canada, Telus, Youth CI, and supported by ecentricarts

The CBC was on hand for the launch and produced a story for CBC News Toronto as well as a companion article about the importance of webwise.ca
