Tweet of Shame
As far as feminist campaigns go, Caroline Criado-Perez pushing for Jane Austen to appear on our banknotes was a pretty modest one. The fallout has been astonishing. Criado-Perez has been subjected to a sustained barrage of threats and abuse via social media. I find it completely incomprehensible why because of what she has said any man would threaten rape. I cannot begin to guess what is going on in these guys heads, the poison and hate that must live there. But maybe I now have a better insight into what misogyny looks like. Nasty stuff.
