Discussion: “Feminism and social media” 3rd Nov (Thurs) 6.30-8pm, venue tba

We’re going to talk about how our feminism relates to our participation in blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and any other online discussion spaces we take part in. Here are a couple of potential discussion ideas to get the mental juices flowing:

– Feminist blogs as ‘safer spaces’ and as spaces for consciousness-raising
– Pros and cons of using social networks such as Facebook and Twitter for online organising
– Online safety
– Google+, anonymity, and the Nym Wars (see for instance Google+ name policy debate)

If you’ve got some more ideas for discussion topics, please mention them here and/or bring them to the meeting!
