Men create counter hashtag #BeingMaleInNigeria and get criticised for competing with women's experience.

We men are being discriminated against too, the ladies are given favours and exemptions all due to their sex and more responsibility is thrown on the men because in our society it is believed (even by the same ladies shouting equality) that women are weaker than Men.

Women speaking out against Prime Minister Narendra Modi's #SelfieWithDaughter campaign have found themselves at the receiving end of sexist commentary and trolling.

Modi said the selfie campaign is a step towards closing the sex ratio gap in parts of the country, and used it to promote his "Save Your Daughter, Educate Your Daughter" initiative.
Actress becomes target of abuse after criticising Prime Minister's selfie campaign against female infanticide.

Tagline
The Stream is a social media community with its own daily TV show on Al Jazeera English.
Introduction
The Stream is a new phenomenon – a web community with its own daily show on Al Jazeera. The Stream taps into the extraordinary potential of the increasing power of social networks to disseminate news. Individuals have now become an integral part of the news information network through their ability to publish information and share opinions on events as they take place. 

The viral nature of social networks allows for such information to spread and multiply rapidly. While these developments have the potential to generate more heat than light, to a broadcaster like Al Jazeera, they are also a huge opportunity to reach news in places and at levels until now impossible. 

The Stream is a super-aggregator of these online sources, seeking out both untold stories and new, ground level takes on stories in the mainstream.
