CSW 67: Pushing back the push-back - Nordic solutions to online gender-based violence

Welcome to this CSW67 event when Nordic gender equality ministers talk about Nordic solutions to make the digital world safer for all, led by Iceland's prime minister. The Nordic countries are ready to push back the opposition to gender equality!


The Nordic countries are among the most digitized in the world, a superpower to promote a diversity of voices. But when digitalization helps expand a growing resistance to gender equality, we must act. The Nordic region is unlike any other when it comes to providing a swift political response to online gender-based violence. The Nordic countries are known for their success when it comes to gender equality. However, gender-based violence persists. The goal of the Nordic cooperation is seeking to ensure that everyone can enjoy a life free from sexual harassment, violations, and violence.
