Abstract

How have digital tools changed and altered the goals, meanings and reception of contemporary feminist activism? In Awkward Politics: Technologies of Popfeminist Activism, Carrie Smith-Prei and Maria Stehle use ‘awkwardness’ as a prism through which to think about 21st-century feminist movements that utilise transnational media from hashtags to film, literature, theory and blogs. This is not only a thorough study of digital feminist activism, finds Sofia Ropek Hewson, but also an unabashedly hopeful book.
