More than 1,000 women in secret Facebook group name men who troll women online – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

More than 1,100 women are tackling online abuse by naming and shaming “trolls” in a Twitter campaign which launched this morning.Members of a secret Facebook group are tweeting out names of more than 150 men who trolled Clementine Ford — with comments including “go to the bathroom and kill yourself” and “bitches like you are the reason why some men are prone to violence” — after a male Meriton employee was fired for calling her a “slut” online.The hashtag #EndViolenceAgainstWomen and screenshots of the abuse would also be included.Within 20 minutes of its launch this morning the hashtag was trending at number one in Australia.Sydney author and columnist Kerri Sackville is leading the charge against the men she has labelled trolls, saying she is sick of seeing women, particularly those in the media, maliciously threatened with rape and murder online.”When you abuse one woman you abuse all of us … I said to my friend there has to be something we can do,” Sackville told the ABC.
