Is the internet safe for women?

Facebook has finally taken down the page on rape but not before a number of men had a field day indulging in their evil fantasies. Social Networking is the domain of misogny now, taking the reach of misogy to new levels. By leaving the page up for as long as Facebook did the company ‘normalised’ violence against women. How safe are women on the internet then?

A woman was raped because her ex-boyfriend posted details of her online falsely alleging that she had a fantasy of being violated. Quite often I see comments left on women’s sites too that threaten rape. Cyber rape is a growing phenomenon.
