Holly Brockwell spoke to the BBC about her decision not to have children- and faced so much online abuse for this, she had to deactivated her twitter account- but bravely went back after 36 hours because she didn't want them to win.
"I am used to trolling as I run a women's tech website but even I was affected this time because it was so vitriolic, so personal and nasty, and so specific about me and my professional life - not even about the issue of having children which I had been writing about."
The Disclosure singer, who has been outspoken about his struggles with his sexuality and weight in the past, took to Twitter to share the link to the page with his 3.3 million followers to highlight the problem of online abuse.
Opinion piece by Katherine Clarke: "Online harassment and abuse of women has a real cost. This cost comes in the form of income lost to missed opportunities when women do not pursue jobs to avoid the crosshairs of men who think they do not belong. Some have spent a small fortune on services that protect their identities from abuse and harassment. As the targets of the Gamergate intimidation campaign can attest, the cost of doing business online as a woman can mean specific rape and death threats so severe that they've had to leave their homes and find temporary housing."
