Online hate – especially against women and gender-diverse people with intersectional identities – threatens the equity, diversity and inclusion gains we’ve made. This action kit was created as a part of Informed Opinions’ Toxic Hush campaign, an urgent response to the silencing of voices that are already chronically under-represented in public conversations.
This toolkit presents a set of guidelines for researching the institutional and personal harms caused by sexual violence. We began developing this toolkit as a way for our research team to think through and reflect on the ethics and practices of survivor-centered research.

This safety plan is an adaptable tool to help keep you safe in your ever-changing situation. Violence against women continues as an epidemic.

Although you can’t control an intimate partner’s use of violence, planning for safety can help you evaluate, define options and opportunities for liberation and safety.
