E-Discussion on Violence Against Women in Politics

This e-Discussion is taking place alongside the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. Contributions are welcome from 26 November to 21 December 2018. The e-Discussion seeks to raise awareness on the issue of gender-based violence against women in politics and expand the dialogue on how to make political spaces safer and more inclusive for women.  

 Questions:

1. What is causing violence against women in politics to occur so widely across the world?

2.  IPU reports that about half of the women MPs subjected to acts of violence do not report them to the parliamentary security service and/or the police. Reporting rate for acts of sexual harassment are even much lower. Why do you think that is? What needs to change to ensure all incidents are reported?

3.  Social media is a top place in which psychological violence (e.g. sexist and misogynistic remarks, humiliating images, mobbing, intimidation and threats) is perpetrated against women in politics. How do you explain this? How can we make sure social media is a safe space for them?

4.  Violence against women in politics makes the work of women politicians difficult and potentially dangerous and therefore unattractive as a career option. What message would you give to women who are discouraged from engaging in political life because of the fear or threat of violence?
