Tara Moss concludes her National Press Club address. "No person of any gender should have to choose between participating in public life and online forums and activities and personal safety. When we truly accept the online world is part of our world, a technology that connects human beings, not its own universe, we can begin to more accurately apprehend that these threats on people's lives and safety are an attack on human rights. The right to public participation in the democratic process. I won't accept that women in public life should expect almost daily rape and death threats. No-one should. To combat that reality, we must first acknowledge that what is happening is real and it has real impacts. Thank you."
