The most significant number of attacks on women happen on social networks daily, and the governments must seriously consider how to stop Internet violence, says Majlinda Bregu, the Secretary-General of the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC).

An RCC statement has quoted her as saying the European Commission (EC) has recently started “Digital Respect for Her” (#DigitalRespect4Her) to raise awareness about the violence against women on the Internet and to promote good practice in fighting that problem.

"Some 45 percent of the South-Eastern Europe population use social networks daily. The authorities have to think about legal means to prevent that while not imperil the freedom of speech at the same time,” Bregu said.

RCC statement added that “the violence on the Internet can cause physiological, sexual and economic problems. It can make women silent and reduce their use of the Internet.”
