We are so excited to announce our latest project: an unprecedented collaboration with Twitter to address the online harassment of women.
The vicious targeting of women who speak up online has reached crisis levels. Examples of the impact these attacks are having on women’s lives are everywhere. Women of color, queer women, trans women, fat women, and other oppressed groups of women are especially targeted and abused. A recent Pew research study found that fully 25 percent of young women online have been sexually harassed online and 26 percent have experienced stalking. What’s more, Pew found that women overall are disproportionately targeted by the most severe forms of online abuse.
