For the last month or so, I’ve been blogging about cyber bullying and harassment. These blogs have focused on the posting of nude pictures of women without their consent by Penn State University’s Kappa Delta Rho fraternity, legislative proposals to deal with rape culture in cyberspace,and an announcement about a Congressional Hearing on cyber stalking.
These blogs are based on my work with a coalition of people concerned about online threats targeting mostly women and girls. The participants in this coalition include members, professionals, and leaders at The National Task Force to End Sexual and Domestic Violence Against Women, the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, the National Organization for Women, and the National Council of Women’s Organizations.
Last week, the Congressional briefing I posted about was seen by about 2,300 people via a live Twitter feed. This briefing was held by in coordination with The Victims’ Rights Caucus (Representatives Judge Poe (R-TX) and Jim Costa (D-CA), co-chairs) and Representative Katherine Clark (D-MA). Panelists included
- Michelle Garcia, Director of the Stalking Resource Center;
- Zoe Quinn, Video Game Developer and Co-founder of Crash Override;
- John Wilkinson, Attorney Advisor at AEquitas: The Prosecutors’ Resource on Violence Against Women; and
- Danielle Keats Citron, Professor at the University of Maryland School of Law and author of Hate Crimes in Cyberspace
This coalition of women’s organizations created and has now distributed a one-page flyer highlighting the problem of cyber stalking and online threats that mostly target women. Here’s a photograph of that flyer.
