The #MeToo movement brought to light thousands of stories of sexual harassment and resulted in the takedown of several high-profile men. It’s also sparked a global conversation about how we treat each other in person and online.
A shared Google document, dubbed “The Shitty Media Men List,” at one point circulated among female journalists, who entered the details of men who had allegedly sexually harassed women in the real world. When the list was leaked, some pointed the finger at the women, arguing that they were committing acts of online harassment simply by contributing to it.
It’s apparent that we don’t yet have clear definitions for what constitutes harassment in the digital realm and especially as it relates to privacy. In the years ahead, we will continue to wrestle with what behavior is acceptable in virtual gaming worlds, in social media, in our mobile exchanges and in general digital discourse.
