Labour's Yvette Cooper explores trolling aimed at women

Yvette Cooper says that the level of online abuse some women face on the internet risks silencing female voices and taking us back to the Victorian Age.

The Labour MP talks to women who have received abuse about their personal experiences.

Fellow MP Jess Phillips says she received "organised misogynistic" abuse after her opposition to an international men's day debate in public.

Yvette Cooper says the internet needs to be "reclaimed" as they are the "new streets".
