Join us for a fireside chat with WGN’s Amy Guth and WSCR-AM The Score’s Julie DiCaro as we address sexism in the sports industry and online bullying. Julie herself was a victim of this practice recently as she reported on the investigation of sexual assault related to Patrick Kane. In response to her reporting, she was relentlessly attacked and demeaned on Twitter and threatened to the point that she didn’t feel safe leaving home. This part of the sports social media culture needs to be addressed to determine how we can curb online bullying and allow everyone to engage in conversation online even on traditionally unpopular topics.
