The National Commission for Women (NCW) has recently launched the Digital Shakti campaign’s 4th phase. The 4th phase of the campaign focuses on empowering and skilling women in cyberspace digitally in collaboration with CyberPeace Foundation and Meta.
Ms. Rekha Sharma, the Chairperson of NCW, mentioned that 4th phase would be a milestone in ensuring safe cyberspace for women. Digital Shakti has been helping women by encouraging their digital participation through proper technical training. The 4th phase campaign in Digital Shakti will continue contributing towards the larger goal of fighting cyber violence against women.
The Digital Shakti campaign was started in 2018 to help women fight cybercrime in the most effective ways. With the Digital Shakti campaign, more than 3 lakh women across India have been made aware of cybersecurity tricks, practices, data privacy, and technology usage for their benefit.
In March 2021, the 3rd phase of the Digital Shakti campaign was launched at Leh with NCW Chairperson Mrs. Rekha Sharma, Lieutenant Governor Shri Radha Krishna Mathur, and Jamyang Tsering Namgyal, MP, Ladakh. In the 3rd phase, the campaign developed a resource center to offer information on all the avenues of reporting in case women face cybercrime.
