State of the art report on sexual and cyber violence
The research examines terminology, research data and the legal framework on sexual harassment in Greece and Europe.

What is the history of the term “sexual harassment”? What terminologies do we use for gender-based violence online? What do European and Greek research data tell us? What does the international and national legal framework provide?

You can find the answers in the new literature research on sexual harassment and online gender-based violence, conducted by Diotima Center and the Department of Communication and Media (NKUA).

The third and final part examines how the phenomenon is represented in the media, while highlighting aspects and dimensions that are silenced, or surrounded by gender and sexist stereotypes, in relevant news reports.

The research was carried out in the framework of the #PRESS project, which is part of the EU-funded CERV Project Grants. The coordinating body is Diotima Center and partners are the Department of Communication and Media of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and Genderhood.
