Dr. Michelle Ferrier, associate dean for innovation at the Scripps College of Communication, recently led a team of women to the top award at International Women’s Media Foundation Summit and Hackathon in New York City.

They developed a new tool called TrollBusters to help women journalists and bloggers fend off cyber bullying and other misogynistic attacks online.

The new system helps women who are attacked online  to be equipped with counter-measures such as reputation management, support from other women, and linkages to legal counsel and other experts who can help.
