Project Description

Tiziana Cantone killed herself after her private images were posted online, and memes were made to mock her about it.

“Her life was ruined, in front of everyone. People made fun of her, parodies ended up on pornographic websites. She was called shameful names.” Tiziana Cantone (31) was mocked and bullied for her private images. People started recognising her in the streets after they had seen the video.

Cantone’s mother called upon the Italian and European governments to introduce stricter laws that would help victims of image-based sexual abuse to get videos removed quicker.
