Great response to online harassment

Emily Temple-Wood, a biology undergraduate student, is writing a Wikipedia entry about a woman scientist for every harassing email she receives.

 

Wikimedia Blogreports Temple-Wood’s first entry was also powered by rage, when she realized few of the female members of the Royal Society (science’s cool club) had a Wikipedia page. She says, “I got [angry] and wrote an article that night … I literally sat in the hallway in the dorm until 2am writing [my] first women in science article.”

Now she writes one every time she receives a harassing email.  She has written a lot of entries.
