As more information about those involved in the Capitol attack comes to light, Everyday Sexism founder Laura Bates says it becomes increasingly clear there are significant ties between the alt-right, extremist misogyny and white supremacy. Bates says these white male supremacist online groups have erupted into deadly real-life violence before and it’s terrorism that needs to be addressed as it continues to move from a dark corner of the Internet into our everyday lives. She spent 18 months undercover as a man in his 20’s, drawn in through YouTube and online gaming platforms and exploring the depths of communities like incels, PUAs (pick up artists), MGTOWs (men going their own way), MRAs (men’s rights activists) and more. Bates has been named in CNN’s 10 Visionary Women List and won Cosmopolitan’s Ultimate Woman of the Year Award.
