Why this picture led to outrage in Australia

(CNN)It is a picture which has been described as showing a “great athlete at her most powerful.” Tayla Harris, a star forward for the Australian Football League women’s side Carlton is captured in the air having kicked the first goal of the game in a match between her side, the Blues, and Western Bulldogs. The picture of the 21-year-old was posted on Australian broadcaster Channel Seven’s AFL Facebook page, but what followed has become all too familiar — “repulsive” comments of a sexual nature posted by trolls which have left the athlete herself saying she felt she had been “sexually abused” on social media. The federal government has added its voice to the chorus of condemnation of the trolls, with Kelly O’Dwyer, federal minister for women, saying she was “disgusted” by the comments.
