Speaking of anti-bullying campaigns, the first thing that comes to my mind is the “It Gets Better Project” which was launched in 2010. In response to the suicides of teenagers who were bullied because of their sexual orientations, the campaign called on people from all over the world and of all sexual orientations to share their own stories and express their support through youtube videos.
The cyberspace does give the bullies an easy way to perpetuate, but it also helps positive information spread in an unimaginable speed and scale. From ordinary people to celebrities, politicians and even the US president, thousands and millions of people joined hands to fight bullying and express hope for a better future.
Four years have passed since the campaign started. Legislations have passed to ensure healthier and safer online environment. The cyber norms are also changing for the better. As we now see the world, it DOES get better.
