    Women vs Trolls the fight for Cyber Civil Rights

    Saturday, April 18, 2015, 9:31 AM [General]

    Powerful women like Professor Danielle Citron, and  Professor Mary Anne Franks of the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative and our own Professor Jane Karwoski  (Dr. J on The Social Network Show) are fighting night and day to help women be safer online.

    Not long ago I called this the "Era of Women" and more than ever I believe this to be true. There is a growing unity among the top female innovators I know--and not a minute too soon. What you may or may not know is that many women are leaving popular social networks because of the amount of harassement and grief they are getting from trolls causing trouble.

    But the Cyber Civil Rights movement is real and we are working constantly to improve the situation. And we need all the help we can get. Mary Anne and Danielle have are both attorneys and their powerful team has caused laws to change to help women in 17 states so far.  If you want to  help, or need help, please contact me. On Twitter I am at @jimdnico and you can get updates on The Social Network Show during "The Mary Anne Franks Series" and keep updated.

    My latest post included below includes my invitation to debate Mark Zuckerberg on The Social Network Show as my associates and I are working to catalyze safety on social networks. The recent appearance of Nina Burleigh, acclaimed author, and Adjunct Professor of Journalism at Columbia on The Social Network Show is an eye opener for those that have kids online; but the real shocker is the letter from Game4Kids and descriptive of our work behind the scenes.  Everything I am referring to is on my blog post here and I invite you all to join us in our fight for safety on line and off as over 500 Retweets on Twitter have shown public support, not to mention support from the other networks..


    Violence Prevention Campaign

    When Laura Davis from Mediaplanet contacted me about partnering for a violence prevention campaign to be published in USA Today I was thrilled. Planned is a 12 page section in USA Today on newsstands by September 27, to reach 2 million+ readers in print and online.

    A press release is also being sent via PR Newswire to 5,000 top media/news websites.

    Laura Davis, of Mediaplanet, talks about the campaign on The Social Network Show:


    Being an expert in the field, with the major contacts worldwide, is a blessing when you consider violence on some social networks is getting worse and more and more children are committing suicide because they are overwhelmed by the cyber hate they experience on social networks.

    Arguably the most famous of suicide cases is the tragic suicide of Amanda Todd, daughter of our advisory board member and child advocate Carol Todd of AmandaToddLegacy.org.

    In addition to Mediaplanet and USA Today, we are featuring former Crown Prosecutor and child advocate Sandy Garossino a Founding Partner of RedHoodProject.com, in a series on The Social Network Show.

    You may read about and listen to shows featuring Sandy Garossino here:


    Please leave comments as we would love to hear from you.

    You can help the cause by joining TheSocialNetworkAssociation.com and aligning with us and our strategic partners worldwide.
