France: Plan on mobilisation and fight against cyberviolence

In France, the Secrétariat d’État en charge de l’égalité entre les femmes et les hommes has issued for 2017-2019 the 5ème plan de mobilisation et de lutte contre les violences. This plan aims to pursue three objectives:

  • Secure and strengthen proven mechanisms to improve the path of women who are victims of violence and ensure access to their rights;
  • Strengthen public action where the need is greatest;
  • Root out violence through the fight against sexism, which banalizes the culture of violence and rape.

Part of this plan is devoted to the exposure to harmful content on the Internet, in particular for young women.
