This from the Globe and Mail:

A woman seeking to expose misogyny in video games has suffered a harsh lesson in the extent of Internet viciousness, as a campaign of harassment escalated to a Canadian man creating a game that let people batter an image of her face.

Anita Sarkeesian, who blogs from California but was born near Toronto and identifies as Canadian-American, had her Wikipedia page locked after it was hacked repeatedly with profanity, lies and pornography. A site on which she fundraises received a concerted campaign to shut her down. And her YouTube channel received a flood of vile messages.
It is striking how the Internet reveals the extent of misogyny in a patriarchal society.
