Social media demands intensive processes of self-representation and self-exploitation, and relentlessly commodifies women’s bodies and opinions. It also offers opportunities for women to develop their own voices and enact their (political) agency.
How should we respond to these demands and possibilities within a feminist framework? What do women look like on the internet – how are they self-styled and represented by others? Who is invested in female identity being constructed in a certain way – corporations? employers? universities? governments? Is that what we want?
