In this paper, I examine the need for research on how cyberbullying and cyber victimization affect women and girls along with what tools women and girls use to cope with these affects. I also look at how ideas about the performance of gender and related societal norms exacerbate the problems of cyberbullying and cyber victimization for women and girls. In addition, I explore the theory that early lessons of gender affect identity and relationships in ways that matter in relation to cyberbullying and cyber victimization vulnerability, responses, and accessible networks of support.
