Digital Rights Foundation


Digital Rights Foundation (DRF) is a feminist, not-for-profit organisation based in Pakistan working on digital rights freedoms since 2013. DRF envisions a place where all people, especially women and gender minorities, can exercise the right of expression without being threatened. DRF believes that a free internet with access to information and impeccable privacy policies can create safe online spaces for not only women but the world at large.

At DRF, we aim to strengthen the protections for human rights defenders (HRDs), with a focus on women’s rights in digital spaces through policy advocacy and digital security awareness-raising. In addition, one of our main aims is to protect women from cyber harassment that they have to deal with throughout their lives by making them aware of their rights and making resources accessible when they need help.

With growing privacy concerns in digital spaces, DRF seeks to increase awareness about privacy issues and defend the right to privacy through research, monitoring and reporting the tactics around surveillance. To rally with other actors for strong legal protection for privacy in the country and to raise our voices against dictating censorship policies, we propose viable solutions to the government and other authoritative bodies.
