- Subject: Sociology of Gender, Cybercrime / Computer Crime, Culture & Media
Misogyny Online explores the worldwide phenomenon of gendered cyberhate as a significant discourse which has been overlooked and marginalised. The rapid growth of the internet has led to numerous opportunities and benefits; however, the architecture of the cybersphere offers users unprecedented opportunities to engage in hate speech. A leading international researcher in this field, Emma A. Jane weaves together data and theory from multiple disciplines and expresses her findings in a style that is engaging, witty and powerful. Online Misogyny is an important read for students and faculty members alike across the social sciences and humanities.

[Page v]This book is for all those dudes who aren’t calling women ‘ugly, fat, and slutty’ online, and who only send photos of their man parts if a lady or gentleman of the interweb asks very nicely first.
You guys are rad and I love your work.
[Page vi]If R.D. Laing was correct in saying ‘few books are forgivable,’ then it’s surely the case that fewer still are necessary. This book is. Emma Jane has taken some well-worn media and cultural studies orthodoxies and subjected them to a series of trenchant, persuasive, and often laugh-out-loud criticisms. People analysing cybersphere culture and discourse cannot afford to ignore this book.
Chris Fleming, Western Sydney University
Misogyny Online is a rigorous, necessary and at times terrifying exploration of one of the most pressing and rapidly growing forms of harassment and abuse of women and girls today. Dr Jane’s interrogation of the rhetoric of sexualised, gendered violence and the rise of multi-perpetrator attacks on individual women using digital technology is a must-read for a greater understanding of this phenomenon and its impact on democracy, culture and the individual.
Tara Moss, author, UNICEF National Ambassador for Child Survival, feminist commentator and human rights advocate.
About The Author
Hello and thank you to my refractory gamerdaughter. Small human, I love you heaps. (Also please stop knowing more than me about internet biz like music.ly and stuff RIGHT THIS MINUTE.) Massive thanks to Melanie Andersen. Your public health brain, hard-arse data crunching, take-no-prisoners critiquing, and cyberhate-free internet experience keep forcing me (in the nicest possible way) to re-think and then re-re-think, again. Thank you, Mel. Nicole A Vincent: a big *\o/* for your endlessly generous input into whatever I’m thinking or writing about, but especially into this. (I’m working on a ‘Thank you, Nicole’ generator to assist with the appreciative gushing, but then I’d need your help with the coding, and then I’d need your help making a second-order generator to thank you properly for the first one, and then … well, you know how these things end.) Chris Fleming – thinky jukebox and intellectual über dude: I have to exercise restraint here because someone said you wrote something nice for the back of this book. As such, all I’ll say is thank you for being the funniest and smartest biped I know, and also for always answering the phone sponsor-style when I need to admit that I am powerless in the face of my irony problem. Nikki Stevens: please refer to the ‘gratitude’ entry at www.theasuarus.com. Thank you for explaining about the pale ale, for alerting me to all of the things, for all of the checking-ins, and especially for your superlative contrarianism (a description I know you’ll say is all wrong). Thank you, also: to Jennifer Taylor, Marie-Pierre Cleret, Tara Moss, and Chris Rojek; to my colleagues at the University of New South Wales; and to Delayna Spencer and Natalie Aguilera at SAGE.
The biggest of all the big thank-you(s)-so-much, however, must go to the 50 women who agreed to be interviewed as part of my cyberhate project. I can’t believe how much I didn’t know before you told me your stories. You guys are ace and I am so very grateful.
