The use of technology to abuse and harass women is a growing issue. The Australian Bureau of Statistics (in AHRC Fact Sheet) estimates that around one in six female workers experience domestic violence in Australia. UK organisation Women’s Aid found that nearly half of domestic violence victims also endure online abuse during and after their relationship with nearly 40% being stalked online (Smith, 2014 in Jane, 2016).
Women are also experiencing online abuse as a part of their professional lives with many of the victims interviewed for Emma Jane's Misogyny Online: A Short (and Brutish) History reporting abuse received in response to their professional online presence which brings into question the workplace health and safety implications for employers. Online abuse of women has been described as a sleeping giant in terms of negative social impact and an important OH&S issue. (Alastair MacGibbon in Gorman, 2015).
