PI’s and Hiperderecho’s joint submission to the UN Committee on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) on the examination of Peru
Our submission highlights the intersection between reproductive rights, privacy, and tech.
- The combination of poor quality of sexual health education in schools and dependence on Internet creates fertile ground for misinformation on sexual and reproductive rights
- Data exploitation strategies obstruct women's unencumbered access to reproductive health information
- Enforcement of data protection law is needed to protect women's privacy when browsing online
Privacy International and Hiperderecho made a joint submission to the UN Committee on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) ahead of the Committee finalising the list of issues for the examination of Peru.
The submission builds on research commissioned by Privacy International and carried out by Hiperderecho on the state of reproductive rights in Peru, and how their exercise intersects with privacy and tech.
The submission is available in both English and Spanish.
