Harnessing the Power of Social Media for Feminist Advocacy & Connection


In a time when we cannot easily gather in person, social media has become an even more important tool. Instead of focusing on the negative impacts of screen time and social media scrolling, what if we focused on the positive? Through the lens of feminist advocacy as self-care, let’s discuss the power of using social media to stay connected and advocate for causes we care about during the pandemic (and after!).
