CGBV

Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has intensified the problem of gender-based violence, according to the EU Commission’s Proposal of March 8, 2021 on addressing GBV. According to the EU-wide FRA survey, one-third of women in the EU had experienced physical or sexual abuse since turning 15. In the realm of sports, there is a disproportionate amount of violence against female athletes since gender stereotypes lead to a lack of respect for a large number of female athletes globally. The physical and mental health of the victims can suffer irreparable consequences from any violent abuse directed against women or people in general. So far, the phenomenon of the physical or psychological abuse against women athletes is still underreported. In the EU member-states, the concept of ‘gender-based violence’ is unknown in the context of sport. Now, it is high time for all to be aware that women and men are equal and complementary and there is no discrimination within the society and especially in the field of sports. #Cancel GBV in Basket is aiming to reach the gap between the problem and the ways of dealing with it, to encourage the victims to share their thoughts with their coaches, to educate the athletes not to harm other people, and to create a case management system that can eliminate the violent issues. CGBV in Basket is a collaboration among four Basketball Federations, namely, the Hellenic, the Cypriot, the Bulgarian and the Macedonian Basketball Federations, and social researchers from AKMI and Center for Social Innovation (CSI-CY).
