  5. Twitter Vows to Improve Anti-Harassment Policies After Trolls Go After Zelda Williams

    ABOUT. DANG. TIME.

    A lot of us got disgusted with the state of humanity yesterday after it came out that Robin Williams' daughter was bullied off social media in the wake of her father's death, in part by two scum-of-the-Earth trolls who sent her photoshopped pictures of her father's body.

    Everyone's heard their fair share of annoying arguments as to why certain fields of study like science and technology are more male-dominated; often people claim that women just aren't trying as hard as men to succeed in their careers, or that most aren't as naturally interested in certain subjects as men are. Or, maybe, it could be that there's little to no support for women who need to report hostile work environments, which ends up turning them away.
