about this item

Despite the early optimism of cyberfeminists, online life is not a level playing field – cybersexism is rampant, and it has an astonishingly high cost. Yet only extreme examples get publicized, while systemic issues with internet misogyny become further entrenched. It’s time for that to change.

Cybersexism in the 21st Century combines a history of online feminism and sexism with an analysis of the current state of affairs and suggestions for solutions and strategies. Using current events and the latest available research surrounding cybersexism, and taking an intersectional approach to the effects of online abuse, author Bailey Shoemaker Richards interrogates the motivations for cybersexist activities and explores methods to reduce footprints of internet misogyny, examining how women today experience online life.
