Ashley Judd and NETIZENS Draw Attention to Online Abuse of Women

Ashley Judd, the well-known actress, activist and Kentucky Wildcats fan, sought to draw attention to online abuse of women in her talk at TedWomen in October 2016, which has gone viral since being released last week.  As a rape victim, Judd feels compelled to speak out at all the rape threats and other misogyny directed at women online.

In addition, Cynthia Lowen, the co-producer/writer of Bully, has just completed a successful Kickstarter campaign for her next project to be released in April – NETIZENS.

The feature documentary, which I have supported, follows women who are targets of harassment, along with lawyers, advocates, policymakers and others, as they confront digital abuse and strive for equality and justice online.

Ashley Judd’s TedWomen Talk and the trailer for NETIZENS are below.
