In September 2014, I was invited to speak at the XOXO conference & festival in Portland. I used the opportunity to talk about two subtle forms of harassment that are commonly used to try and defame, discredit and ultimately silence women online: conspiracy theories and impersonation.

Note: trigger warning early on for examples of rape and death threats as well as blurred images of weaponized pornography.
