Violence against women journalists and politicians remains a growing challenge within the OSCE region and in the world. While women have always faced serious challenges when participating in the public sphere, the past decade has witnessed an alarming rise in gender-based violence1 in the political and media fields, particularly in the online realm.

In this context, OSCE organises a web dialogue on violence against women journalists and politicians. The event aims to enable an open and thought-provoking exchange of experiences and observations while raising participants’ awareness of the growing crisis. The event will focus on examining the growing challenges and developments related to tackling gender-based violence against journalists and politicians within the OSCE region. To do so, it will consider current issues faced by legislative and policy frameworks of OSCE participating States (pS), as well as the real-life experiences of women in the fields of journalism and politics. It will also serve as an opportunity for policymakers from across the OSCE region to engage constructively with participants and experts and discuss how to better shape human rights-compliant and gender-sensitive policies, institutions, and procedures to tackle gender-based violence in the respective fields of journalism and politics.
