From Margins to Mainstream: Social Media as a Tool for Campus Sexual Violence Activism
Linder, Chris; Myers, Jess S.; Riggle, Colleen; Lacy, Marvette
Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, v9 n3 p231-244 Sep 2016
Using Internet-related ethnography (Postill & Pink, 2012), we examined the role of social media in campus sexual violence activism. Based on observations of online activist communities and interviews with 23 activists, we highlight raising awareness, community building, and interrupting power dynamics as activism strategies enhanced by social media. Further, we provide implications and recommendations for administrators, educators, and student activists.
