This is the short title of Dr. Everbach’s book coming out in March, co-authored by Dr. Jacqueline Ryan Vickery of UNT Media Arts. The book’s full title is "Mediating Misogyny: Gender, Technology and Harassment," and it examines the gender-based harassment to which women are subjected online and in other media. This is a timely topic, as the #MeToo movement has advanced over the past year and powerful men have been forced to resign because of harassment and abuse. The book also looks at the ways in which sexism and misogyny are spread through the media, including news media and various entertainment media.
