It will present initiatives and strategies to achieve women's equal digital participation, to end online violence against women and to promote women’s empowerment via digital technologies.

It will draw upon promising research, policies and initiatives across Europe and worldwide. It will also explore the added value of the Council of Europe’s legal instruments: the Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence (Istanbul Convention) and the Committee of Ministers’ Recommendation on preventing and combating sexism.
