Quote for Day: This Kind of Vitriol Is Designed to Silence Female Journalists

Amy Wallace on what women often encounter when they speak out online and elsewhere (as opposed to men):

This kind of vitriol is not designed to hold reporters accountable for the fairness and accuracy of their work. Instead, it seeks to intimidate and, ultimately, to silence female journalists who write about controversial topics. 

The video: the group Cantus singing Bobby McFerrin's rendition of Psalm 23. I find the comments thread at YouTube responding to the video interesting.
