Alisha's book recommendations
The rampant nature of gender-based trolling is changing the face of online communication like never before. It has served as a catalyst for women to bring awareness to an online world that is now a dangerous and unwelcoming space for them, especially those who work in the media industry. These books explore some of today's most pressing issues in this field, including: the evolution of the Internet troll and its pervasiveness in online life, how current legal systems can protect individuals from cyber-harassment without undermining freedom of expression, and how solidarity through the use of information and communications technology (ICT) is being used to galvanize support for women.
