Silence, Woman: An investigation into gendered attacks online


Online abuse and online violence against women is a topic that has been often in the headlines, but so far, with few real solutions.

In partnership with BBC Panorama, we investigated the gendered abuse that contestants on reality shows Love Island and Married At First Sight UK faced online. We also investigated how women who were not in the public eye were being impacted by online gendered abuse through their reporting online of their own experiences. Investigating thousands of social media posts across multiple platforms, this report presents our findings.
