On his show Last Week Tonight John Oliver points out that the internet provides a medium for some of the worst elements of society to mercilessly attack women via revenge porn and other means just for the ‘crime’ of being a woman online or expressing an opinion publicly. There is something very, very disturbing about this phenomenon because it reveals a really ugly side of humanity and the fact that there seems to be little recourse for the targeted women makes it even worse.
Google has announced steps to prevent its search algorithms returning revenge porn results. That is a step forward but does not eliminate the problem since the sites will still exist. Somehow you suspect that if the targets of systematic online harassment were powerful people, they would quickly find ways to stop it.
