Online violence against trans women perpetuates dangerous cycle
June 12, 2015
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."
