Thesis Title
Measuring misogyny: A comparative analysis of responses to gender-based violence on three social media platforms

Research Description
Lucinda’s research explores the manifestation and spread of misogyny on social media platforms. Conceptualising misogyny as a continuum, Lucinda seeks to draw particular attention to the more ‘covert’ types of misogyny that are not always immediately apparent, but underpin and reinforce a culture of violence against women. Lucinda’s project involves a comparative analysis of responses to a gender-based violence controversy on three different social media platforms. Through this work, Lucinda aims to identify practical opportunities for legal, technical, or other intervention to combat online misogyny.
