Feminist professionals denounce online harrassment

12:13 Nov 12 2013 Boston, MA, USA

Description
Women and people of color are under-represented in online discourse inn the US. One reason for the disparity is race- and gender-based online harassment. Many outstanding scholars have already addressed this phenomenon. One example is Danielle Citron’s influential article “Cyber Civil Rights.” The Feminist Law Professors blog started a series of posts to reiterate that such harassment is a serious social problem that deserves attention.

In particular, authors want to look closely at the technology of race- and gender-based harassment — that is, the way that internet harassers focus on identity rather than on ideas as a specific strategy for excluding women and people of color from online discourse.
