The paper examines the nature and types of gender harassment occurring on the net, including possible causes of this online offense, particularly characteristics of the net which make it a fertile ground for proliferation of offensive contacts. It also explores whether online gender harassment rises to the level of an actionable claim, and will examine some of the inherent problems in pursuing such claims, as well as pursuing criminal charges against offenders.
