Joining today’s show is Amanda Hess, a contributor for Pacific Standard, to discuss her latest article: Why Women aren’t welcome on the Internet.
Pacific Standard’s cover story documents the alarming and disproportionate number of threats women face online. From 2000 to 2012 nearly 73% of people who reported harrassing incidents were women.
While women are told to ignore the threats, grow a thicker skin or simply just get off social media Amanda says that should not be the point.
The Cyclists had a few comments on Amanda’s article, which made us think you would too!
