Combating Hate-Speech | RECLAIM | European Role Models
Europäische Akademie Berlin e.V. Bismarckallee 46/48
In 2023 there is still a long way to go to create gender equality in the world and also in Europe. Even today, women are still underrepresented in political decision-making, and many women also state that politics is male-dominated because they are often not trusted enough. In reality, there are many causes for this imbalance - but where is the best place to start to eliminate it?
With the "RECLAIM | European Role Models" project, we want to make a contribution to giving women a voice in society and in debates and encouraging them to participate in policy-making despite structural disadvantages. "RECLAIM" is aimed at female activists and local politicians from Europe. It aims to raise awareness of gender inequalities, find ways to deal with them and empower each other - online and on the street.
Our first workshop deals with the topic "Combating hate-speech". While online attacks, hate speech and disinformation can target any women, women in politics or civil society activists are particularly vulnerable because they operate in the public sphere. They receive a tremendous amount of online abuse, harassment, and gendered defamation via social media platforms.
