Raised by 56 people in 5 months
Hi, We are a group of victims determined to fight back against Anon-IB, a website used to anonymously post nude or pornographic photos without the subjects permission in order to humiliate, shame or blackmail them. It's a disgusting practice, and victims often find themselves with little no legal recourse or options to have their photo removed. Anon-IB not only promotes this practice, but they also turn a blind eye to child pornography, rape and theft. The entire business model of this website is despicable, and they have victimized thousands of women worldwide since its inception. The subjects often face ongoing struggles due to having their private images shared online- many victims experience stalking, harassment, and blackmail, as well as having their personal and professional reputations ruined. Anon-ib, specifically, is only one outlet for this practices, but it is the one most commonly used, and their business model is set up solely to victimize and harm women.
We would like to raise money in order to hire IT techs, and Lawyers to help us achieve this goal, and make a large step forward in eliminating revenge porn and non-consensual photo sharing. A portion of the money would also go towards providing victims with resources to have their photos removed, legal resources to discuss options for prosecution, as well as help handling the emotional aftermath of having their personal photos and information posted maliciously.

About us: We are the Battling Against Demeaning and Abusive Selfie Sharing- or, as we prefer, BADASS. We are a group of victims brought together by our desire to fight back against anon-ib and other sites used for the same purpose. The business model of Anon-IB relies on shame and humiliation to thrive- many victims are too afraid of the posted photos being seen by their families or loved ones to seek recourse- and we refuse to be shamed into submission. We have created a safe space free from judgement, and rather than feel helpless, we take an active role in fighting back against revenge pornography and illegal photo sharing and hosting. We also take the time to monitor the sites, and identify and notify victims. We believe that there is power in numbers, and that by working together, we can make a difference.

Anyone who has been a victim of Anon-IB or similar sites is welcome to join us, Simply send us an email at womenagainstanonIB@gmail.com, and you can connect with other people who have gone through the same nightmare, as well as resources to help you get justice. Your identity and any personal information will never be shared to anyone outside of our group.

Our official mission statement, according to our 501c3 (yes, that means any donation towards our cause is tax deductible!)

We now have over 650 members of the badass army, working together to fight revenge porn! We have also begun filing our 501c3, to ensure that our donations are going towards our cause, and giving donors a tax write off!
We’ve also introduced legislation in the state of Ohio to criminalize revenge porn, with Senator joe Schiavone of boardman. We hope to have this bill become law soon!
With your help, we have removed almost 2000 photos from the web. We have helped police catch 8 scumbags sharing photos of minors, and we have unmasked hundreds of posters.
We hope to create civil lawsuits against the posters, We need your help though- we are planning to have our lawyer waive into states to start going after posters, and the cost associated with that is around 1100 a state. Please share our campaign, and donate what you can towards these fees!

We have hired our lawyer and are moving forward!! Daniel szalkiewicz will be representing us in our suit against anon-ib!! He has some great ideas on how we can get them down, and we are ecstatic to have him on our team!! Our group of victims is now over 450, and growing every day. We've created a safe space for them, and it's so empowering to meet such strong, amazing people!
However: we still have monetary/gift needs-
-we are working on getting our 501c3 up and running, so no matter the outcome of the suit, we can continue providing resources for revenge porn victims for a long time.
- we will be having a fundraiser on November 10th, at the Lemon Grove in Youngstown OH. We will be premiering "Wonder Woman"! Information on tickets will be available asap- meanwhile, we are accepting donations for our Chinese Auction! If you have a prize you would like to donate, email us at: womenagainstanonib@gmail.com
-we are planning a march against revenge porn in Columbus in April. Ohio still has a total lack of laws against revenge porn, and we need to make it known that we need to enact laws to protect victims!
- One of our group members is organizing a continuing education class for law enforcement, attorneys, educators and mental health professionals, so they can learn how to properly investigate and handle the repercussions of image based sexual abuse. We are also debating a series of speaker assemblies at high schools, discussing both prevention and safety, as well as being honest of the consequences involved in sharing nude photos.

We hope to change the world. We set completely reasonable goals, right?! We have the numbers, the determination, and the drive to do so... all we need is the financial backing to make this a reality. Thank you to EVERYONE who has donated, you are all amazing.


Thank you so much for reading and donating! You are all amazing!
