In this one and half hour webinar, our host and discussants talk about the politics around Non-consensual Dissemination of Intimate Images (NCII), women’s bodily autonomy, sexuality, consent and technology. The discussions are summarised briefly as follows:-

1. The slippery slope between NCII and pornography, and; classification of NCII as porn presumed women’s body as an object for sexual gratification.

2. Women who exercise their autonomy in expressing their sexuality is often victim-blamed & punished by society.

3. The motivation behind NCII is not always revenge, they includes peer pressure, ‘joke’, as a way to gain social capital, money.

4. NCII is a form of sexual assault and has very real impact and harm on our physical being.

5. The complicity of technology in aggravating the harms & the bystander effect.

6. A survivor-centric approach to combating NCII is needed.

7. Existing laws that criminalise NCII tend to stem from the need to protect a woman’s morality rather on the violation of bodily autonomy and integrity.
