Hi everyone! I'm a postgraduate human rights law student at the University of York (https://www.york.ac.uk/cahr/). I'm currently researching online abuse against women for my dissertation. To assist my research, I'm looking for** women who share views on political/social issues online to take part in a short survey**. The survey is open to both those who have experienced online abuse or had a negative online encounter and those who have not. Political and social issues refers to a wide range of topics including party politics, news stories/current affairs, Brexit, refugees and migration, Islam and Islamaphobia, religion, feminism and women's rights, domestic abuse, discrimination, racism and hate crime, the Black Lives Matter movement, LGBTQI+ topics and more. You may share views only occasionally or frequently, and this could be on the MWN forum, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, or other Internet platforms. The survey is **anonymous** and should only take around **10 minutes** to complete. You can find out more and access the survey here: https://york.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_39upCCsdJTVzf5r The deadline for taking part in the research is the 9th August 2020. Please comment or email me at ls1927@york.ac.uk if you have any questions. Thank you for your support - your participation is invaluable!

    I have filled in the survey and hope you will come back to let us know what the findings highlighted! There definitely needs to be more of a discussion about online abuse and its impact on women, especially BAME women, so will be interesting to hear what you find out. Good luck with your research!

    This is amazing research and I really hope good things come out of it because while we all know this is something that women have to deal with every day, it does feel like at times, nothing is being done to tackle it. Good luck!
