Global Shapers Berlin Hub believes that your images belong to you.
Unfortunately not everyone agrees with this notion, and many people find themselves unwillingly exposed on the internet.
There is limited information, support, and understanding for those going through this, which is why – on the International Women’s Day 2020 – Global Shapers Berlin Hub launched ANNA NACKT, an online community and what-to-do guide to help people who discover naked pictures of themselves on the internet.
With this project, Global Shapers Berlin aims to create awareness around cyber-violence and advocate for policy change and proper training for the law-enforcement workforce on this topic.
Right now, Berlin Hub is partnering up with local and regional entities working on cyber-security and data privacy to organize webinars around the topic.
Anna is the founder of this platform, and represents the many women* who have found their naked photos online.
Anna found her photos on various porn sites. They appeared suddenly and without her permission. Each time she thinks they’re gone, they appear again. As if that wasn’t enough, she couldn’t find the help she needed. Conversations were horrible, with the police, IT experts*, professors*, lawyers* and friends*.
So many of the professionals she spoke to lacked the necessary knowledge and empathy to help and support her. “Ask Google”, shrugged a policewoman.
She knew she wasn’t the only person suffering through a situation like this, and she knew she had to help them.
We are all ANNA NACKT, and we are many.
