Online Platforms

Online platforms such as Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr play a very crucial role in influencing young people to understand and appreciate the feminist movement and themselves. It allows young people, male and female, to have a voice that can be shared without direct backlash or immediate dismal of what they have to say. This is an element of society in which the younger generation have the upper hand, spreading revolutionary messages and ideas internationally. It also encourages people who may not necessarily want to directly speak out, to feel confident in themselves and their opinions, and shows how much support they have and how their community is continuously growing. Many people underestimate the internet’s ability to ‘spread the word’ and bring people together in a very positive way. This also means that any hateful or derogatory comments can be tackled together and not alone, strengthening each other as they form stronger bonds and gain more support.
