EP: Violence against women online

In an interview reported in Violence against women online: ‘Freedom of speech ends where threats abound’, Terry Reintke, a German member of the Greens/EFA group states: ‘It is not freedom of expression to consciously intimidate people on Facebook and Twitter, especially women, insult them, express the wish to rape them or to threaten physical harm.’ The topic will be debated in the European Parliament’s (EP) debate on 27 April, before the vote set for 28 April.
