They are looking for stories from women who have experienced violent threats and harassment online specifically related to their gender as well as any other intersecting forms of identity (e.g. race, sexual orientation, religion, gender expression). They want to know how online abuse made women feel and how women dealt with it - did you block users, report to police or companies, get offline, stop posting about certain content? They also want to know what the response was if you reported the online abuse to the police or to the social media companies directly.
