Abstract

The development of information and communication technology (ICT) is currently very helpful for human activities, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. With the existence of sophisticated technology during the COVID-19 pandemic, it can facilitate the flow of communication and information without being hindered by space, boundaries, distance and time, and can increase productivity and efficiency. However, it cannot be denied that with the development of information communication technology (ICT), new crimes in cyberspace, especially sexual harassment of women, are the biggest victims of being harassed in cyberspace. This harassment is carried out through social media such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and other social media. Perpetrators of crimes of sexual harassment in cyberspace in Indonesia can be sentenced to a criminal sanction which is contained in the Criminal Code and the ITE Law. The theory that the author uses in compiling this paper is library research and the purpose of this study is to monitor the position of women as the biggest victims of sexual harassment in cyberspace and how active sexual harassment perpetrators are in social media in the ITE Law.
