Internet anonymity fueling misogyny

By: 

Sadly, it was a good year for misogyny, Editorial Dec. 28

Unfortunately misogyny is not limited to politics. As Status of Women Minister Patty Hajdu said, it exists in public spheres and online. The anonymity of the Internet encourages misogynists to spew out hatred unchecked and with greater ferocity. However, the minister should enforce the law when threats of violence or death are aimed at elected politicians.

Politics has become a war zone where women are the enemy to those who desire power. If Justin Trudeau is sincere about equality, he needs to speak to and end the vitriol.

There are many good men out there, who are equally disgusted by the maltreatment and violence towards women. If only they would speak up. It’s time.
