Amanda Hess on the Subject of Misogynistic Trolls

Last week I wrote about the gender politics of trolling. One of the articles linked within that piece was by Amanda Hess (shown at right), whose recent column in Pacific Standard magazine is about a particularly abusive troll who stalked and threatened her over the course of several years.

Hess was interviewed this morning on WNYC's Brian Lehrer Show. I happened to be listening at the time, and she did a good job of spelling out some of the bullshit women face on the internet, along with some of the details of her personal experience. You can listen to the interview with her here:
