by No Hate Speech Movement category: Cause
Today the International Day for Women’s Rights is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating progress towards the realisation of women’s rights and gender equality. Sexist hate speech builds on narratives reaffirming gender stereotypes which justify gender discrimination and sexism, so the No Hate Speech Movement calls on young people to counter sexist hate speech through education and advocacy, raising awareness on the impact it has on women and men, human rights and gender equality.
No Hate Speech Movement
The Movement is initiated and run by the Council of Europe but it is based on national campaigns run in the member states of the Council of Europe. The campaign is against the expressions of hate speech online in all its forms, including those that most affect young people, such as forms of cyber-bullying and cyber-hate. The campaign is based upon human rights education, youth participation and media literacy. It aims at reducing hate speech and at combating racism and discrimination in their online expression. The campaign is not run to limit freedom of expression online. Neither is it against hatred online and nor about being nice to each other online.
