Lilia Gumerova held a meeting with a working group from the Forum of Women Parliamentarians as part of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) Assembly in St. Petersburg.  The issues covered included the influence of modern technologies on ensuring democracy and gender equality.

Lilia Gumerova noted that in an open dialogue, women parliamentarians primarily shared their views and experiences on gender equality with reference to new technologies and online phenomena.

“The Internet now has a serious effect on our economic, social, cultural and environmental surroundings. Despite the advantages, there are some dangers we see in the threats and challenges associated with suicidal games, recruitment to extremist and terrorist organizations, Internet harassment and cyber violence against women, girls and children. This problem has no boundaries, and here we, the women of the world, need to unite and confront these challenges together,” the senator said.

She stated that Russia is actively working to prevent such occurences: legislation is being improved, new mechanisms are being introduced to counteract activities aimed at encouraging children to engage in suicidal behaviour, and acts are being adopted aiming to stimulate and broaden women’s social life.

“The adoption of the National Strategy for Women, initiated by the Chairperson of the Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko, can be seen as a new starting point for gender equality in the Russian Federation.

Valentina Matviyenko The document contains target values and expected results, as well as measures to improve the status of women in political, economic, social and cultural life,” said Lilia Gumerova.

The parliamentarian stressed that effective mechanisms have been developed in Russia in recent years to identify and prevent violations of freedom (including sexual violations) and to protect people’s physical and psychological integrity. The senator considers it a possibility for these acts to be used as a basis for the future development of joint acts between the member countries of the Inter-Parliamentary Union.
