  On the December 30th, 2014 edition of Your Call, we'll have a conversation about digital hate speech. Women are overwhelmingly the targets of cyber harassment. Some have even been chased out of their homes by the barrage of threats against their lives and families, while others have quit communicating online altogether. Is online harassment a civil rights issue? When is harassment illegal? And how should social media corporations and our legal system respond to threats online? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
