  • Internet Can Empower, but Opens ‘New’ Forms of Abuse: Bennett

    A high-level cabinet minister in Newfoundland and Labrador who revealed publicly last year some of the attacks she was having to endure through email and social media says there are things which can be done as a society to change such behaviour.

    The internet can be a great tool for social change and education but it also has a dark side. Finance Minister Cathy Bennett, who became the target of online attacks of a violent and sexual nature, was invited to be part of a Canadian delegation to the United Nations in New York to discuss the issue of cyber violence.

    She says the internet is empowering, but it is different for women and young girls who are now open to “new” abuse.
