Social networks have become a platform for denouncing sexual violence. Six years after the #MeToo movement (created in 2006 by Tarana Burke), Laura Bates founded the web portal Everyday Sexism Project, where women can safely and anonymously recount the misogynous situations that they face on a daily basis. The project was a great success on social media, with over 150,000 accounts recorded.
