Podcast 1.4 – Cyber Abuse, Title IX, and the First Amendment

Posted on March 5, 2019

Does a secondary school or university have an obligation to respond to harassing and threatening gender-based comments posted anonymously on Yik Yak or other social media sites? What is a school’s obligation and how can school administrators carry it out consistent with the First Amendment rights of the students posting the messages? These are some of the questions we explore in this podcast with Kelli Musick of the Feminist Majority Foundation. We also discuss best practices that campus safety officials can follow in gender-based cyber harassment cases.
