"Prominent gender rights groups have petitioned popular social networking site Facebook this week to address the representation of rape and domestic violence on its site.
The petition calls for comprehensive, swift and effective action from the website owners to recognise speech that glorifies violence against women and to be intolerant towards such posts. It appeals to the site to "effectively train moderators to recognize and remove gender-based hate speech.""
