Powerful Video Reveals the Abuse Hurled at Women Sportswriters
Trigger Warning: The following video contains threats of violence and rape. Be forewarned that its content can be considered disturbing to some audience.
Sportswriters Sarah Spain and Julie DiCaro invited several men to read some mean tweets to their face, but they didn’t expect to see the cruelty these women have to face every day.
From casual sexism to rape and death threats, both women had seen and read all of the tweets sent to them in the video. However, the men in the video had no idea what they were getting into. All of them were ashamed, and even apologized on behalf of the men who sent the abusive tweets.
The whole video is to bring light to a Twitter campaign entitled “#Morethanmean” which confronts the issued faced by women who have suffered similar abuse.
