The Webinar on ‘When does free speech become censorship? The constitutional case against sexist speech’ is organised by IT For Change on Feb 10, 2021 from 6:00 -7:30 PM.

About IT For Change

IT for Change is an NGO based in Bengaluru, India. IT for Change aims for a society in which digital technologies contribute to human rights, social justice and equity. Most mainstream approaches to digital technologies for development are either techno-utopic or promote a market-fundamentalist approach, often both together.

About the Webinar

An oft-repeated argument against the case of online content regulation is that platforms are proven bastions of free speech. At the same time, instances of removal of content and blocking of users have led to claims of censorship on the part of platforms.

The session will look at how a lack of restrictions on free speech can affect the ability of women and marginal groups to participate politically in online democratic spaces. It will focus on the constitutional role of free speech in a democracy, the necessary role of reasonable restrictions to free speech, and how to address sexist hate speech online within this larger question of defining the boundaries of free speech.

  • Speakers: Amber Sinha, Aparna Bhat, Asha Kowtal and Mariana Valente
  • Opening remarks: Naghma Mulla and Ruhiya Seward
  • Moderator: Divya Srinivasan
