Abstract:

Cyberbullying is a growing problem associated with act of giving ridicule comments, body shaming and harassment against someone through digital communication such as social media. Nowadays, young adults spend a great deal of time using and interacting through digital communication via electronic device. As a result, the effects of Cyberbullying spreads all over the world, from school to workplaces. Bullying and Cyberbullying might seem similar but it has stark differences. It has been noticed that in case of cyberbullying, the perpetrators do not have the fear of being caught and this makes the situation even worse for the victims, unlike in cases of traditional bullying. Cyberbullying also has significant negative impact on people’s self-esteem. Hence, this study tries to determine the effects of cyberbullying on women's mental health and how it impacts the general wellbeing and self-esteem of a woman. Increased awareness and timely reporting of such incidents are likely to lessen the grim effects of this new-age digital bullying.
