Atalanta in The Guardian

A new piece of research looks at the way that female and male leaders are treated on social media. The research, by the social enterprise Atalanta (which is focused on female representation in government) compared Theresa May to Jeremy Corbyn alongside pairs of female and male political leaders in South Africa and Chile.
They found that May had three times the share of comments about her appearance than Corbyn, and messages about May were often gendered.
