Surfing the digital wave: Network feminisms in Brazil

This article aims to develop reflections on the relationship between feminisms and digital media, based on the current Brazilian social and political context. It explores the ways in which the feminist movement has appropriated the digital medium as a space for disseminating its agendas. The analysis points to the presence of a duality concerning digital feminism: at the same time that it presents itself as a space of militancy and visibility, its agendas are appropriated and commodified, becoming the target of market disputes. However, even amid political clashes, conservative attacks and the strengthening of neoliberal precepts, feminist actions linked to the digital sphere have played a central role in struggle and resistance.
