Gender based violence
Open letter: Gender-inclusive and safe digital world that is free from violence for all
EDRi and 45 organisations call on the European Parliament to better protect those who face digitally facilitated gender-based violence.
Only more rights will protect women on the internet
EDRi welcomes the proposal’s intention to effectively combat online gender-based violence through a specific Directive. However, EDRi is concerned with the specific focus on the criminalisation of online activities rather than addressing structural issues and root causes of gender-based violence. Furthermore, the Directive lacks a meaningful comprehension of how social media business models amplify violent gender-based violent content.
