Activists Publish How-to Guide on Protecting Yourself From Online Harassment

On Tuesday, three feminist badasses published an easy-to-use digital handbook to help marginalized folks stay safe(r) online. As the authors — Anita Sarkeesian, Jaclyn Friedman, and Renee Bracey Sherman explain on the site, they themselves suffered sustained cyber-harassment and abuse for years: “[W]e’ve written the guide we wish had already existed when the attacks on us began.”

You can check out Speak Up & Stay Safe(r): A Guide to Protecting Yourself From Online Harassment here — it’s available in English, Spanish and Arabic. And, while you’re at it, don’t miss another fabulous resource, the DIY Feminist Cybersecurity Guide by Noah Kelley and Safe Hub Collective!
