Abstract and Keywords
This section contains three chapters that examine how information and communication technologies (ICTs) are presenting transnational feminist movements with creative political opportunities, particularly for young feminists. The first shows how ICTs have altered the historical terms and conditions of gendered power by extending the scope of feminist connections and possibilities. It also explores how feminist activism and advocacy have shaped new patterns in the global digital public sphere. The second looks at the role of ICTs in facilitating awareness, discussion, and the creation of transnational feminist networks that have made it possible to launch global campaigns on violence against women. It cites the work of two—Women Living Under Muslim Law and 50 Million Missing—in mediating violence against women online. The third chapter discusses the online and offline activism of girls and young women via networking and coalition building through the use of ICTs and social media.
Keywords: information and communication technology, transnational feminist movement, activism, transnational feminist network, violence against women, Women Living Under Muslim Law, 50 Million Missing, girls, young women, social media
