Isla Vista killer’s misogynistic rant spurs #YesAllWomen response

YAW-1-tweetAs UC Santa Barbara students and members of the Isla Vista community continue to deal with the shock of Friday night’s stabbings and shootings, people on social media over the weekend started responding to the misogynistic messages in Elliot Rodger’s YouTube video and e-mailed manifesto.

In the video, he blames women for rejecting him.

A trending topic on Twitter became #YesAllWomen, in which women talked about the ways in which they feel unsafe and targeted because of their gender.

KCRW’s Steve Chiotakis spoke with Rachel Sklar about the Internet’s response to the Isla Vista shootings. Sklar is a writer, social entrepreneur and founder of the women’s networking organization The Li.st.
