Stop online hate against women!

At the moment the European Parliament discusses a new EU law against gender-based violence, the “Directive on combating violence against women and domestic violence”.

The EU now has the chance to stop attacks and humiliations against women. HateAid calls on all Members of the European Parliament to advocate for swift negotiations and effective provisions within the new Directive.

Every day, women and girls are sexualised, insulted and threatened on social media

58

% of female members of parliaments in Europe have already been target of sexist attacks on social media.

11

% of women in Germany have suffered from unauthorised disclosure of their address or other forms of private data.

52

% of women in the EU express their opinions online less often for fear of hate.

The consequences for victims of digital violence are often severe. Many victims withdraw from public debate on social media. They change their place of residence for their own safety or they lose their jobs. Victims often suffer from sleeplessness, panic attacks and other psychological harms, even leading to suicide.

We are sick of the hate and violence against women! Now it’s time for the EU to take real action.

Our demands

We call on the EU:

No loopholes! All forms of digital violence against women must be criminalised across the EU. This applies in particular to image-based sexual abuse and doxxing, the unauthorised dissemination of private data.

The safety of women is of public interest! The EU must acknowledge: the prosecution of violence against women, including digital violence, is of public interest. Too many cases are being closed because it is claimed that the violence is an individual problem.

Support victims of digital violence! Feelings of helplessness, burdensome security precautions, emotional and physical discomfort: victims must not be left alone with the devastating impact of digital violence. The EU must support the creation of contact points for victims and secure dedicated funding for counselling centres.

Justice for women! The EU must ensure proper education and training for law enforcement to better identify digital violence against women and ensure gender-sensitive police services.

Misogynists call for hate attacks in messaging boards and other social media platforms. 

Far-right extremists deliberately publish private addresses of women and incite others to organise real-life attacks. 

Intimate images are secretly taken or manipulated and deliberately disseminated online. 

The goal: to silence women by wearing them down and pushing them out of the public sphere. When women and girls try to take action against the perpetrators, they often fail. This is because not all forms of violence, like doxxing or image-based sexual abuse, are criminalised in the EU. And reports to the police are often dismissed.
