100 Women
 As part of BBC 100 Women 2016 we’re asking the question is the internet sexist? If you’re a woman, you’re 27 times more likely to be abused online. If you’re in the developing world, nearly 25% fewer women than the men around you have access to the Internet. If you are searching on the Internet, the search engine is likely to be designed by men. Only 1 in 3 google staff is a woman.
