As this is a collective blog, our group decided to focus on one ‘event’ and all publish different perspectives on it. This week the #MeToo movement has been hard to miss and we will be sharing a series of posts about it with you. Conor looks at #MeToo on Instagram, Maria asks whether the movement will actually make a difference beyond the hashtag hype, Alice explores the global nature of the hashtag and how it travelled across linguistic borders, Ruket asks if this is just ‘slactivism’ and Sofo explores how social media sharing is just one step in a ‘long and rocky road’ to social change. That’s just a taster of all they have to say so please do click and read today’s offerings.
