Will your candidates help fix the glitch?
This general election offers an opportunity for all political parties to explicitly support equality for women. Women’s lives have changed significantly in the last 50 years but there is still lots of work to do.
Glitch is proud to be part of a coalition of 30 organisations striving for gender equality and women’s human rights. We call on candidates from across the political spectrum to adopt policies in this Women and Girls 2019 manifesto to redress the imbalances in our society that harm all women and girls, especially those who are further marginalised by race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation or disability. We call on candidates to commit to:
Ensuring the new duty of care on online companies to protect their users includes tackling sexual harassment, bullying and violence that disproportionally affects girl sand women, and ensuring online safety for all women and girls, acknowledging the intersectional nature and impact of this discrimination by requiring service providers to fund comprehensive digital citizenship education for users across the UK.
Let’s make this general election about online safety and justice for all women and girls online. Ask your candidates today: how will you improve the lives of all women and girls online? #GE2019WomenandGirls #GE2019 @glitchuk_
