Silk and Steel Podcast #82-Women’s Forum on Misogyny, Harassment and Victim Blaming

Silk and Steel Podcast #82-Women’s Forum on Misogyny, Harassment and Victim Blaming

September 6, 2020
Recent expose of serial online harasser of leftist Asian women, British columnist Tom Fowdy had resulted in an explosion of misogyny, victim blaming from some members in the anti-Imperialist, pro-China Twitter space. I invited three women who had been on the receiving end of Tom's unwanted sexual advances to talk about why his action is not ok, why we need to call out online harassment of women in public and why victim blaming is not okay, why hyper-sexualisation and fetishisation of Asian women need to stop, why as a community we need to do better to protect more vulnerable members of the group and to cast out the bad apple.
