Sexism 2.0: tackling harassment online

We look at the issue of policing the digital space from abusive, offensive and threatening behaviour. Nathalie Dreyfus, a lawyer and consultant on digital legislation, joins us in the studio to talk about the consequences of a landmark case in the UK.

Feminist campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez used social networks as a platform last year, in order to lobby the Bank of England to put a woman on their banknotes. Yet her initiative was marred by the torrent of online abuse it generated, including serious rape and death threats. How is European and international law rising to the challenges of virtual threats that have become very real?

And in China, female imams are overturning the stereotypes of patriarchy and extremism in religion, while female athletes take to the piste in Sochi for the Olympic Games' first ever female ski jumping event.
