Digital violence against women: new forms of violence and approaches to fight them in Europe
Digitalisation is ubiquitous and changing the way we live. It offers new opportunities and challenges but may also pose dangers for people. This newsletter focuses on one of these dangers, namely the increasing digital violence against women, and presents selected policy approaches, initiatives and studies on the extent and the handling of digital violence against women in Europe: What does digital violence mean? Is digital violence against women a recent phenomenon or the continuation of violence against women and girls in the real world? How does the European Union approach this phenomenon of genderrelated digital violence and its effects? Which national approaches and initiatives on detecting and tackling digital violence already exist? And which (digital) means can effectively counter digital violence?
