CBC Ideas Looks at the Concept of Shaming

More and more, I see that one of the only avenues open to women in the fight against harassment and misogyny is shaming. Shauna Hunt used it to fight back against asinine, offensive heckling. Women are sending the unsolicited dick pics to their owner's mothers.

Although public shaming is by far a new concept, it is definitely a double sword, apt to boomerang back in your face at the slightest change of the public's mood.

CBC's Ideas takes an in depth look at the concept and history of shaming. It is worth a listen. As I don't see any embed feature on the CBC website, I shamelessly took a screenshot of their page and linked to it).
