California Shooter’s Misogynistic Rants Inspire #YesAllWomen

May 26, 2014

A killing rampage in California apparently borne out of hatred for females has inspired women to tweet about their experiences of everyday misogyny using the hashtag #YesAllWomen

Elliot Rodger, who killed six people before taking his own life, left behind a disturbing internet footprint of misogyny, hatred, and self-pity across the Internet on sites like YouTube, PUAHate.com, and BodyBuilding.com. Roger also wrote a 141-page manifesto entitled "My Twisted World."

Women across the world have used the issues raised by Rodger's horrific act of violence as a springboard to speak up against global sexism. Since Friday's killings, over 1,000,000 tweets decrying sexism, intimidation, and gender violence have carried the hashtag #YesAllWomen.
