Misogyny online and Digital Vigilantes with Emma Jane
Trigger Warning: This story discusses gender and sexual based violence
Although International Women’s Day is a day of celebration, it’s also a stark reminder of the inequality women experience despite how far things have come.
You don’t need to have spent much time on Facebook or Twitter to realise that misogyny is alive and well online. Women experience the same gender-based violence online as they do at work or walking down the street.
Tess Connery was joined by Emma Jane a senior lecturer at UNSW’s School of the Arts and Media to discuss her research into misogyny online.
