Anti-Misogyny Protest on Twitter Sparks Debate

A Twitter campaign was held on Sunday where participants used the hashtag #twittersilence to focus on institutionalized misogyny and to empower women’s voices online. What started as a silent campaign soon became a lively discussion in which feminist activists addressed online hate speech targeting women and possible solutions. "#twittersilence isn't helpful. The whole idea is to NOT be silenced," tweeted political analyst Zerlina Maxwell.
