Weaving a ‘World’ for Women: Exploring the Affordances of Digital Spaces for Transnational Feminist Organizing

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study explored the technological affordances of digital spaces for transnational feminist organizing. The digital space of World Pulse, an online media network, was examined, focusing in on a recent digital action campaign aimed to collectively engage the online community around a problem of interest. The organizations’ campaign messages and the content and structure of submissions to phase one of the campaign were analyzed qualitatively using a thematic analysis. The analysis identified three salient affordances of World Pulse’s digital space for transnational feminist organizing, including connecting, voicing, and exchanging. Additionally, this study identified both material and socio-cultural constraints related to participants’ offline realities that shape their abilities to leverage these affordances, drawing attention to the ways members’ are multi-located. Understanding what actions these digital spaces of transnational feminist organizing enable has implications for organizations, activists, and practitioners turning to the web as a ‘space’ for collective organizing and activism.
