Does the internet hate women?

In NETIZENS we meet a handful of women who’ve been victimized online and decided to fight back against toxic masculinity and the social structures which has turned the internet into malicious and deeply misogynistic arena. Anita Sarkeesian was one of the main victims of Gamergate, lawyer Carrie Goldberg works with victims of sexual harassment and Tina Reine uses her own experiences of being stalked to help others in the same situation. NETIZENS is a must for anyone who wants to understand the magnitude of this 21st century plague – and for those who want to know how to combat it.
