Gendered disinformation threatens democratic integrity, gender equity, and national security across Europe by disproportionately targeting women and discouraging their participation in public life. While domestic actors are the primary source of such narratives, Russian influence operations carried out by fringe political movements, political elites, and pro-Kremlin outlets play an important role in amplifying them.   

As Europe builds its counter-disinformation capabilities, how can leaders effectively combat gendered disinformation?
