Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, and Google all have promised the online experiences for women.

The tech companies made the pledge to improve the safety of women online at the UN Generation Equality Forum in Paris.

The companies said that they will work on improving who can react and engage to what women share online, as well as safety and navigation features.

The move will work towards¬†“proactively reducing the amount of abuse” that women encounter in online settings.

Do you think social media and internet leaders should do more to make users feel safe? Have you ever dealt with bad interactions online?
