Abstract: Submission of Evidence on Online Violence Against Women to the UN Special Rapporteur on Violence Against Women, Its Causes and Consequences, Dr Dubravka Šimonović. The submission of evidence falls on the 3 questions posed by the UN Special Rapporteur http://www.ohchr.org/EN/Issues/Women/SRWomen/Pages/OnlineViolence.aspx.  The focus of this evidence rests upon the legal landscape within the multiple jurisdictions that comprise the UK, and pays particular attention to the legal landscape within the UK, text-based misogynistic abuse, harm, and the thresholds for criminal prosecutions.
