On Thursday 01 July 2021 the FEMM and LIBE Committees considered a draft legislative own-initiative report which calls on the Commission to table a Directive on combatting gender-based cyberviolence.

The text identifies 'computer crime' as the legal basis for the Directive according to Article 83(1) TFEU).

The draft text focuses on combatting cyber violence as an expression of gender-based violence with specific attention to violence against women and addresses aspects such as measures aimed at the prevention of crime, at improving online safety and effectively tackling this phenomenon.
