In Sweden, too, scandal surrounding US film producers Harvey Weinstein and sexual assaults against women, who are suspected of rape and abuse, is generally discussed. Now, Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström has spoken and calls for stricter laws to protect women better.
On Wednesday, Wallström wrote on her Facebook page under hashtag MeToo that she herself had become a victim of sexual harassment in her office. In general, sexism is also a problem in politics. "I can confirm that this occurs at highest political level and that it has also happened to me," said Wallström, finally, to Swedish news agency TT.
Although minister did not want to talk about details of her personal experience, she had already described 2014 in her autobiography, written by Swedish journalist Jan Scherman, as she did during a dinner with European Heads of State and Government suddenly felt a hand on ir thighs. The man beside her had begun to paw her. "That was absolutely unreal," it says here.Movement in social media is still not enough
Wallström stressed that it would like to focus on misconduct in politics. The minister said that countless women all over world, under hashtag MeToo in social networks, reported ir own experiences of harassment, attacks and rapes, clearly show that action must be taken. Because a movement in social media is not enough yet.
Wallström was from 1999 to 2010 EU commissioner and from February 2010 to June 2012 UN special envoy on sexual violence in conflict. In August 2014, she returned to Swedish politics.Abuse agent calls for new federal government to act on
The case of Weinstein, not only in United States but worldwide, has provoked a broad debate on abuse of and assault on women. After a call to actress Alyssa Milano, thousands of women reported mselves under hashtag MeToo with ir experiences with sexual harassment. In this country, sexism debate was also launched, after Berlin State secretary Sawsan Chebli was not recognized at first during a panel discussion by organizer and n had to take comment: "I did not expect such a young woman, and Then y are still so beautiful. " Chebli denounced this utterance later as an everyday sexism.
Meanwhile, abuse agent Johannes-Wilhelm Rörig has called on future federal government to engage more strongly against sexual violence. "The debate on sexual violence cannot be conducted loud enough," he said. Abuse is bekämpfbar, "but not with few means with which we have been struggling for years," says Rörig. "I call on future federal government to now strike a new chapter in fight against sexual violence."
The overwhelming response to debate shows how great global scale of sexual violence against women, children and young people is. The problem is that many cases are not even reported to police and refore do not feed into statistics. Recent studies have estimated that every seventh in Germany has suffered from sexual violence in childhood and adolescence.
