An Australian student has publicly condemned a group of men after she was accidentally added to a group chat in which they shared degrading and misogynistic messages about her.

University of Melbourne commerce student Eleanor Henry, 22, discovered the men saying things like they would "throw her on that bed", and referring to her as a "bike".

Ms Young posted screenshots of the chat to her Facebook account in a bid to open a conversation on the objectification of women.

"Let's all wave hello to my fellow peers at Melbourne University," she said.

"This is why I'll die a feminist. It's 2016.. Let's get back to that conversation on equality."

Ms Young told Pedestrian.TV her sister encouraged her to stand up for herself.

"To begin with I felt really, really ashamed and I didn't want to do anything. I tell my sister everything and I called her, explaining the situation," she said.

"Our parents, the all-girls school I went to and our friendship circle have taught me to stand up for myself and ultimately fight for women's rights.

"After speaking with [my] sister (who essentially reminded me of all this) I decided to go ahead and post about it," she said.

Ms Young said she would be reporting the men to her university so that she did not have to share any classes with them.

One of the men involved messaged her directly, saying, "We are all close mates, we say random stuff… It's just unnecessary to build a scene, but up to you. I just wanted to tell you from our point of view... because when someone from outside sees stuff like that it looks wrong," he said.

"IT IS WRONG," Ms Henry replied.

Ms Henry's post received almost 500 reactions.
