MCF Webinar: Exploring online misogyny and image-based abuse

On March 22nd Marie Collins Foundation hosted a highly informative online webinar with guest speaker Lizzie Reeves from Internet Matters who shared insight into online misogyny and image-based abuse.

During the webinar Lizzie Reeves shared key findings from research which was undertaken with young people and parents to gain insight into the impact of misogynist influencers’ aggressive rhetoric on teenagers’ lives in the online world.  Attendees learnt that awareness of self-professed misogynist Andrew Tate is high among both parents and children. With 23% of 15-16-year-old boys and 56% of 25-34-year-old dads having a positive impression of him. The webinar provided the opportunity to learn about the manosphere, ask questions about the research findings and discuss the best ways to start conversations about online misogyny.
