If R.D. Laing was correct in saying “few books are forgivable,” then it’s surely the case that fewer still are necessary. This book is. Emma Jane has taken some well-worn media and cultural studies orthodoxies and subjected them to a series of trenchant, persuasive, and often laugh-out-loud criticisms. People analysing cybersphere culture and discourse cannot afford to ignore this book.
Misogyny online: a short (and brutish) history is a rigorous, necessary and at times terrifying exploration of one of the most pressing and rapidly growing forms of harassment and abuse of women and girls today. Dr Jane’s interrogation of the rhetoric of sexualised, gendered violence and the rise of multi-perpetrator attacks on individual women using digital technology is a must-read for a greater understanding of this phenomenon and its impact on democracy, culture and the individual.
The book is well–written, engaging and worth a read, and it will interest those who want to study or learn more about cyber hate culture, gender and online harassment.
A powerful text .... essential reading for everybody
