Girls are bearing the brunt of a rise in US cyberbullying

Rachel Whalen looks at her phone Monday, July 22, 2019, at her home in Draper, Utah. Whalen remembers feeling gutted in high school when a former friend would mock her online postings, threaten to unfollow or unfriend her on social media and post inside jokes about her to others online. The cyberbullying was so distressing that Whalen even contemplated suicide. (Rick Bowmer/AP)
