Internet Governance Forum or in short IGF is a multi-stakeholder forum to discuss the internet policies and internet governance. IGF 2014 takes place at Istanbul and this year, “Feminist Principles of the Internet” at the Sexual Rights are discussed as a pre-event of this forum. So various sexual rights activists, women’s human rights defenders and gender equality advocates share their precious thoughts on the  intersections between sexuality and internet rights in the framework or internet governance. As we know, cyberspace becomes more sexist and day by day the number of women who faced with any kind of cyber violence increases. In order to prevent this, in this pre-event, the following themes are discussed.

– Pornography, children and violence;
– Access, transformation and resistance;
– Privacy, anonymity and data;
– Amplify, Information and regulation

Thanks to this pre-event and sexual rights activists, women’s human rights defenders and gender equality advocates may be some problems related to cyber violence will be solved in the future.
