Response to the increasing digital violence against women and girls

Response to the increasing digital violence against women and girls

Although they make up more than half of the world’s population, women and girls around the world are still at risk of being killed and exposed to violence, intimidation and harassment just because they are women. Violence against women and girls is the result of intersectional forms of social, political, economic, racial and cultural discrimination they are exposed to on a daily basis.

Attitudes of girls in Serbia on the position of women in society: Almost every other surveyor thinks a woman is completely accomplished only when she becomes a mother, while 81 percent of them believe that a mother should sacrifice for her children.

English

Parent’s sacrifice is expected even nowadays

A recent survey on the correlation between gender stereotypes and gender-based violence has shown that a significant number of women would neither leave their violent partner nor report violence.

Also, a great number of girls believe that the most important mission for a woman is to be fulfilled through a mother’s role and that her value is measured by her eagerness to sacrifice for her children and family.
