Stop Online Abuse is now live!
27th June 2015 Amelia Gentleman reports on the website. Nik Noone, the chief executive of Galop, the LGBT anti-violence charity that helped develop the site, said: “Evidence suggests that more than 1 million people in the UK face online abuse each year. While online abuse can affect anyone, women and LGBT people often experience abuse as a result of their sex, gender identity or sexual orientation. Our casework here at Galop also evidences an increasing trend, the impact of which can have far-reaching consequences. This project is about ensuring that protection from harassment and abuse against women and LGBT people in the real world exists in the online world too.”
