I made this Storify page in order to demonstrate one social media phenomenon that allowed women to share their stories of fear and discrimination that they face in their everyday lives.  The hashtag was created in response to Elliot Rodger, the 2014 Isla Vista shooter who posted a video describing how women’s rejection made him want to “punish” them.  The hashtag became very popular, so I attempted to show the best tweets and news stories as response to it.  Check it out!
