What are the Historical Roots of Online Feminism?
“Global Feminism and the Digital Revolution” is an interdisciplinary roundtable exploring how feminists around the world have adapted digital technologies to their own ends. How have activist women stood at the cutting edge of the digital revolution? What are some of the benefits and limitations of women’s adoption of new technologies for social activism? In what ways has the digital revolution reified and constructed inequities in global social movements’ access to power and resources? Join the conversation moderated by Cynthia Enloe, a leading scholar of globalization and social movements.
