While some dismiss this growing problem of online harassment as simply harmless male trolls spewing their venom, such abuse is driving women journalists off the web. Why the differential between threats to women and men? The answer lies in persistent stereotypes about women, power and speech.
It is a known fact that poverty and health care disparities exist in America's underserved communities. The statistics here as they relate to perinatal health and infant morbidity and mortality rival that of third world nations.
