Black girls and young women are often targets of slanderous and misogynist attacks in social media. Many more girls' self-esteem and reputation are being destroyed, due to negative messages and images of Black girls and young women in online spaces. Negative images of Black girls in social media are threatening to destroy their education and futures. We all must end the predatory violence, objectification, and electronic assaults against our nation's young Black women. They are our future mothers, sisters, workers, and citizens. We all owe them protection and the right to their full humanity.
