Feminist writers are so besieged by online abuse that some have begun to retire

Feminist writers are so besieged by online abuse that some have begun to retire | Gender and social media | Scoop.it

Jessica Valenti is one of the most successful and visible feminists of her generation. As a columnist for the Guardian, her face regularly appears on the site’s front page. She has written five books, one of which was adapted into a documentary, since founding the blog Feministing.com. She gives speeches all over the country. And she tells me that, because of the nonstop harassment that feminist writers face online, if she could start over, she might prefer to be completely anonymous.

#Uglygirlsclub: student feminists take to Twitter to hit back at critics

#Uglygirlsclub: student feminists take to Twitter to hit back at critics | Gender and social media | Scoop.it

When students in the feminist society at Royal Holloway University overheard someone refer to them as the “ugly girls club” at a student union event, they reclaimed the phrase as their own.

They changed their name to the “ugly girls club” on Facebook, writing “we are more than our appearance and so are you”. Then they took to Twitter to show just how ugly they could be.

Writing Her In: Wikipedia As Feminist Activism

Writing Her In: Wikipedia As Feminist Activism | Gender and social media | Scoop.it

"[...] It’s no secret that women have been rendered invisible in history, sports, laws, medical care, politics, corporate boardrooms, museums, religion and the military. One of my professors in graduate school, Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza, used to say that part of what makes patriarchy so powerful is its erasure of feminist history. Without knowing our history, she’d say, without knowing about the work of the women who came before us, we’re left reinventing the wheel.

 

The Internet is now where histories are stored and accessed, and it’s where subsequent generations will go when they want to know what’s real, what matters. But guess what percentage of Wikipedia contributors are women?

13 percent. Yes, you read that right. [...]"

SheWired - Op-ed: Think Before You Tweet | Gender and social media | Scoop.it

"[...] Hashtag activists (myself among them) can garner a following just for hitting the right note at the right time. I tapped into a lot of female/feminist anger a few months ago when I revived the #sharedgirlhood hashtag, sending out several hundred tweets on issues from female genital mutilation and child brides to being shouted down in grade school and high school classrooms to child sexual abuse. Soon women from all over the world, all ages, all classes, all races, were sharing their experiences of growing up second-class in a world run by male privilege. It was all wonderful bonding until it got hijacked by, well, male privilege and its handmaidens, the women who stand for men before women like we were all back in 1950. [...]"

If Twitter Won’t Handle Its Massive Harassment Problem, These Women Will

If Twitter Won’t Handle Its Massive Harassment Problem, These Women Will | Gender and social media | Scoop.it

Someone’s finally doing something about Twitter’s gendered harassment problem. There’s just one problem: it isn’t Twitter. Yesterday, Women, Action & the Media (WAM!), a nonprofit group that addresses gender issues in the media, announced that they have partnered with Twitter to “cut down on the harassment of women” on the social media platform.
