  • Scale-up project
The Observatory monitors the spread of misinformation, disinformation, and fake news in Latin America, showing how fake news and disinformation against women in politics is a form of gender-based digital violence aiming to delegitimize women's participation in electoral processes. From this study, the initiative aims to create a research-based advocacy model to introduce this pivotal issue in the public agenda, and to influence domestic public policy in Latin American countries.
