“See it. Name it. Stop it”: The Council of Europe takes stand against sexism

In March 2019, the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers adopted a new Recommendation on Preventing and Combating Sexism. Not only does this text contain the first ever internationally agreed definition of sexism, but it also proposes a set of concrete measures to combat this wide-spread phenomenon.  Last week, with the aim to promote the fight against sexism and the implementation of this Recommendation, the Council has launched a video and an action page under the hashtag #StopSexism and the slogan “Sexism: See it. Name it. Stop it.” In the upcoming months and starting from its outstanding experience in advocating for gender equality in the media, COPEAM engages in fully supporting this campaign and takes a stand against sexism.
