About this Event

Join UN Women in a virtual event co-hosted with the Embassies of Iceland, Latvia, Canada and Estonia in Copenhagen on: Combatting Gender-Based Violence in Online Gaming: Towards an Inclusive and Safe Space for All.

On 2 December 2021, 13:00-15:00 CET online. Zoom link will be provided prior to event start.

Online gaming is more popular than ever. With an estimated revenue of $196 billion in 2022, it is considered one of the fastest growing industries in the world. Gaming is and should be for everyone, yet women, girls, and gender-diverse people continue to face exclusion, harassment, threats, and online violence in these spaces.

The virtual event brings together experts from the field of gaming, tech and prevention of gender-based violence to discuss how online gender-based violence can be better recognized and addressed, and how the online gaming space can be safe and enjoyable for all to engage.

Join this event and participate in the discussion on recognizing, addressing and reporting online gender-based violence and building an inclusive space for gaming, moderated by Kalliopi Mingeirou, Chief of Ending Violence against Women and Girls Section at UN Women.

WHAT IS 16 DAYS OF ACTIVISM AGAINST GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE?

The 16 Days of Activism campaign is an annual international campaign, running from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, until 10 December, Human Rights Day. It forms part of the UN Secretary General’s Unite Campaign.

It was originated by activists at the first Women's Global Leadership Institute in 1991 and since then over 6000 organizations in approximately 187 countries have participated in the campaign, with a reach of 300 million people. It is used as an organizing strategy by individuals, institutions, and organizations around the world to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls.

This year the overarching theme of 16 Days of Activism emphasizes the alarming increase of GBV in different forms of harm and different places, highlighting understandings of GBV in its full complexity. Learn more about the campaign and this year’s theme here.
