Hate speech targetting women is often neglected, for is is so much present in every day life and it can be so subtle that people do not even recognise it. This is why it is even more dangerous. Such hate speech is proliferating, notably on the Internet, with daily calls for violence against women and threats of murder, sexual assault or rape. Initiated by the United Nateions from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day, the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign is a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world.  The No Hate Speech Movement joins this global action and invites YOU to report hate speech targetting women on the Hate Speech Watch. The Movement will announce these reports on social media and will call for united counter actions online. View

HUMAN RIGHTS: ALWAYS ON

HATE SPEECH IS A VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS. In December the Hate Speech Watch dedicates its activities to speaking up for Human Rights Online and we invite YOU to report any online Human Right violations on the Internet. The action day will have special attention to the issues around refugees and recent Human Rights violations in and around Europe. Our actions will reflect messages of solidarity towards refugees, will include counter narratives against hate speech towards them. Actions will also call for commemorating the victims of hate crimes that happened recently and our content will also express that no crime can justify hate speech against people who belong or seem to have similar identity with those who committed the violent act. See detailed content and concept of the Action Day here View
