During the Ending Sexual Harassment and Violence in Third Level Education (ESHTE) project, our team created a series of webinars covering a variety of issues raised by students and institutes in our partner countries.
Examining online harassment, bystander approaches, and legal frameworks around sexual violence and harassment, you can watch and share each of these webinars below.
Webinar One | Online Harassment Against Women and Girls in Europe
Catríona Graham is Policy and Campaigns Officer with our associate partner, the European Women's Lobby, and, in our first webinar, addresses the various types of online harassment that students - in particular, women students - are exposed to, including the impact and prevalence of this type of harassment. As part of this, Catríona explores the ‘HerNetHerRights’ project, which aims to analyse the current state of online violence against women and girls in Europe.
