Project Definition of Cyberviolence:
Cyberviolence refers to online behavior that constitutes or leads to harm against the psychological and/or emotional, financial, physical state of an individual or group. Although cyberviolence occurs online it can begin offline and/or have serious offline consequences. More properly understood, gender-based cyberviolence refers to misogynistic behaviour that can flow on and off line.
