Language: Spanish (English translation)

The new wave of fights for women’s rights has been accompanied by a reactionary backlash. Online harassment of women, especially feminist communicators and journalists is rising. How are the online hate messages related to women generated and spread? The specialist in social network data analysis and visualisation Mariluz Congosto will analyse the network data at this conference, to show how these messages are spread in a global context in which messages of hate, unfounded rumours and fake news are spread.
