Front Cover
SAGE Publications, Feb 4, 2017 - Social Science - 152 pages
Misogyny Online explores the worldwide phenomenon of gendered cyberhate as a significant discourse which has been overlooked and marginalized. The rapid growth of the internet has led to numerous opportunities and benefits; however, the architecture of the cybersphere offers users unprecedented opportunities to engage in hate speech. A leading international researcher in this field, Emma A. Jane weaves together data and theory from multiple disciplines and expresses her findings in a style that is engaging, witty, and powerful. Misogyny Online is an important read for students and faculty members alike across the social sciences and humanities.
