Criminal Code amendments to add gender dimension in defining criminal offenses

A draft law on amending the Criminal Code stipulates changes including: using gender sensitive vocabulary as opposed to the gender-neutral language that has been in use until now, inserting a gender perspective, a guarantee that gender dimensions are taken into consideration in the definition of criminal offenses and the acts for the implementation of the Code, amendments relating to sexual assault and rape, amendments to define psychological violence, and incriminating stalking and sexual harassment as new crimes with regulations that will sanction the perpetrators and protect the victims.
