In late November the European Women’s Lobby launched the publication of its #HerNetHerRights Resource Pack and Report on online violence against women and Girls.
From April to November 2017, the European Women’s Lobby has led this six-month project that aims at analysing the current state of online violence against women and girls in Europe. In order to raise awareness on the problem, the EWL has brought together diverse actors from across Europe to come up with innovative solutions and policy recommendations to fight this pervasive violation of women’s human rights and create a safer, more inclusive web for all women and Girls.
In Europe, 9 million girls have experienced some kind of cyber violence by the time they are 15 years old. The gendered nature of online violence deserves to be addressed in research, policy and prevention.
