I found this piece in the Sunday NY Times about a magazine essay titled, “Why Women Aren’t Welcome on the Internet.” The essay was originally published in Pacific Standard. It’s very long. I confess I didn’t read the whole thing but it has generated a lot of follow-up mail.
I thought it would be something about how few women choose to become programmers, etc., but the essay is about online abuse of women. I don’t want to raise unnecessary concerns, but I wonder if any of you have experienced this type of online harassment.
