Schriftliche Erklärungen zur Abstimmung

. – This resolution highlighted many areas, in which we need to make progress in order to achieve gender equality, such as pay transparency, stepping up the fight against gender-based violence, the role of education and zero tolerance for discrimination, access to safe and legal abortion, etc.
However, it included two problematic points, which led to our abstention on the final vote. First, we do not support the introduction of binding quotas in elected bodies. We of course stand behind the representation of women, but quotas are not the right way to achieve it. On the contrary, they limit the free choice of voters, conflict with constitutional law and could result in a discrimination vis-a-vis other groups, creating a system with no choice and not based on capabilities.
Secondly, the resolution is calling to use any actions to eradicate hate speech and online harassment. As much as we fight against these phenomena, we consider the use of ‘any’ means to be disproportionate and with the risk to open the door to solutions we strongly oppose, such as error-prone automatic filters.
