#Gamergate. #MeToo. #SayHerName. Another year, another movement fighting to see women as people. Are you managing or participating in an online community that seems, er…less than welcoming to people identifying as women? Let’s look at examples from entities large and small — including Wikipedia, Refinery29, NowThis, the Mayor of London, and more. We’ll discuss gender gap and women’s representation campaigns that worked and backfired, the audiences they went up against, the platforms they used, and how to convince even the biggest dudebros that respecting women might not be such a bad idea after all.

This is a Learning Forum session.
