“Every fifth young woman aged between 18 and 29 suffers sexual harassment online and a vast majority of them suffer sexual and physical violence by an intimate partner,” B.a.B.e. warned in a press release.
The NGO underlined that women have 27 times more chance that they will be harassed online and that online violence occurs at a very young age.
A survey conducted indicates that NINE million girls in Europe suffered some form of online violence by the time they turned 15.
The “SURF and SOUND – Support, Unite, Respond, Fight to Stop Online violence” project is a comprehensive, systematic approach towards all important stakeholders in an effort to reduce the occurrence of online violence against women in society.
The project will be implemented over a period of two years in partnership with the Electronic Media Agency. The project is valued at just over HRK 1.5 million and 80% is being financed from the EU’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship programme (2014-2020), the press release said.
