From UltraViolet, GLAAD, Kairos, Women’s March
Online harassment is a growing issue in America today. At the same time, not all harassment is equal – individuals with marginalized gender and racial identities tend to experience online harassment and hate speech at increased levels. To better understand online harassment across race, gender, and sexuality, UltraViolet, GLAAD, Kairos, and Women’s March commissioned YouGov to study these interrelated phenomena using a national survey of social media users in the United States. Across the results of the study, we found places where the answers of people of color (POC), women, and LGBTQ+ respondents differed and stood out from their respective comparison groups. These findings illuminate the unique ways that these specific marginalized groups experience social media and can help hold platforms accountable.
