Bytesforall Bangladesh’s Munir Hasan organized a series of Take Back the Tech (TBTT) campaign in seven locations across Bangladesh. The objective of these campaigns was to raise awareness among the university level students (specially female students) about the unreported incidents, consequences and legal remedies to online harassment, privacy infringement. All the campaigns were organized in different educational institutes and were attended by hundreds of female students who raised questions about the remedies, shared their experiences and interacted for a lively session. Bytesforall Bangladesh is working to develop a solution where the incidents could be reported anonymously using cell phone or Internet and can be connected directly to the local authority. Following are the locations and the approximate number of participants who attended these TBTT campaigns.
