Disinformation & Digital Blackface

What do antivax memes, abortion myths and canceling Father's Day have in common? They're all lies amplified through fake online accounts impersonating Black women. Digital activist Bridget Todd sheds important light about how this kind of racist, sexist disinformation works, its offline impacts and what tech platforms have — and haven't — done to stop it.  Unladylike: A Field Guide to Smashing the Patriarchy and Claiming Your Space is available now, wherever books and audiobooks are sold.
