‘A few tweets and messages on the internet, what can you do?’ But is that whole truth? More than 40,000 sexist insults, rape and death threats, a montage of a decapitated woman’s head, footage of a rape and house burglaries – there is no way that this kind of hatred simply stays online. Politicians Laura Boldrini and Kiah Morris, YouTuber Marion Séclin and young teacher Laurence Gratton are exposed to this violence offline, in real life. And they are left on their own with it. Can anything be done about it? The four women say: Yes! They are demanding that someone is finally held accountable and are challenging the major online platforms YouTube and Facebook, the state and the perpetrators themselves.
