Victim or voice? Women, activism and social media

This event was recorded on 8 Mar 2017, at the Royal Society, and was held as part of International Women's Day 2017.

Join our panel as they discuss how social media 'trolling' fits with our understanding of gender violence, what mechanisms are in place to tackle the problem, and how women can put themselves into a position of power on a digital platform.
