Online feminist publication has suffered a series of cyberattacks over the past month, which has made it difficult for readers to access the website. “Hi friends, the Magdalene website often cannot be accessed because we have been experiencing a lot of attacks over the past month,” the Magdalene official Twitter account @the_magdalene wrote on Wednesday. “These attacks, whatever their motives are, will hurt the freedom of the press, limit the space for dialogue and discussion, and in the end, they will destroy the opportunity for alternative media to grow,” the message continued. Established in September 2013 by Devi and fellow female journalists Hera Diani and Karina Anjani, the bilingual feminist website has vocally advocated for women’s rights, LGBT rights, and gender equality. The site has more than 42,000 followers on Instagram and nearly 68,000 followers on Twitter.
