There is a picture shared on Facebook of a woman undressed to her underwear, gagged with an apple like a suckling pig roasted on a spit, her body bound with rope and suspended from a long metal pole carried in procession by a gang of men.
Beneath it reads a caption: “Feminist found in town this morning—captured and put on the grill.”
This is nothing new to Hildur Lilliendahl Viggósdóttir, an Icelandic feminist who has captured the attention of a nation ever since she set up a Facebook album back in February, ‘Men Who Hate Women’, which features content like this on a daily basis.
In the popular album she points out the perpetrators of the everyday casual sexism directed at women in general, and feminists in particular, that she has found on public forums across the web.
