It is a phenomenon, as minister Mogens Jensen (S) would like to have identified. Therefore, he takes the initiative to a study of the extent of the problem.

The study, by Mogens Jensen are now taking the initiative to be launched in early 2020.

The need to identify young men from the North who move in forums such as 4chan, 8chan and Reddit, and how these forums on the internet affect and amplify young men's attitude to and understanding of gender equality.

the Study must also highlight the scale of the phenomenon and relationships with mainstream internetkultur. It is expected to be finished in september 2020.

- This is about to get some better tools to try to counteract and prevent hate speech against women on the internet, says Mogens Jensen.

the Nordic Council of ministers allocates 700,000 to the study.

Who should stand to make the investigation, is yet to be seen. There must first be obtained available from vendors in the course of this month.
