[COLUMN] Sanitary Panels on facing threats online (COMIC)

21 June 2018

Sanitary Panels is an ironic yet hard hitting series where social commentary masquerades as humour and makes us rethink many of our assumptions. This comic explores aspects of gender and technology including discrimination faced by women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) education and careers.

In this comic Sanitary Panels looks at how police and society react when women complain of threats, harassment and violence online.
