Online Harassment and Abuse Has Driven Dozens of Women From Powerful Positions

From an AP story by Amanda Seitz headlined “Disinformation’s board’s ex-leader faced wave of online abuse”:

Nina Jankowicz, like so many millennials, was excited to share a social media post announcing her new job late last month when she was named executive director for a new disinformation board established by the Department of Homeland Security.

But instead of well-wishes, Jankowicz’s tweet set off a torrent of sexist profanities across social media and menacing emails filled with rape or death threats that continue to follow her even after she resigned from that new job on Wednesday morning following the disastrous rollout of the program.
