Abstract

Research on the topic of cyberbullying often ignores the gender aspects involved as it is approached as a problem of peer bullying. However, cyberbullying reproduces the same gender stereotypes which are present in physical spaces: it often involves the threat of spreading content aimed at undermining young women´s reputation and jeopardizes their present and future personal and professional relationships. In the face of these aggressions, the message that is transmitted to adolescent girls in the media is not one of empowerment but of fear. The burden of protecting oneself and adopting precautions is subverted in them, just like in physical spaces. It is essential to socialize adolescents without fear of discrediting, marginalization, humiliation and, in short, gender violence.
