Stella should know.
Doubtless she does,  she has received numerous online rape threats and other misogynistic messages, and one sender of such abusive online messages was jailed for sending them.

She has also spoken about and campaigned for other very serious issues about women.

She has also suggested that misogyny should be made a hate crime.
