Facebook: Change your policies to reduce violence against women

This petition had 148 supporters

Facebook's current policies aren't working and are, in fact, contributing to violence against women. ..."more than 75% of targeted online abuse is aimed at women." (Chemaly). Facebook currently allows misogynistic pages--in spite of the fact that those pages are reported repeatedly. Thier "explanation" for allowing them is that those pages encourage discussion or are a form of humor. Facebook's "case-by-case approach cannot assess how an overall hostile environment (treating rape and violence against women literally as a joke or ignoring content that is viscerally threatening and desensitizing) is threatening, unsafe and harmful to users (male and female)"(Soraya Chemaly) There is nothing funny about violence against women.
