Ciberfeminismo en España: discurso teórico y prácticas digitales
(Cyberfeminism in Spain: theoretical discourse and online activism)
The cyberfeminist movement began in Spain in the mid-90s of the 20th century. This book aims to examine its current situation through discursive practices of online feminism.
To this end, a theoretical framework is constructed where the main lines that make up online activism are analysed. One of them, the one studying social cyberfeminism (a movement coined by Montserrat Boix) and the other, through art on the net (called net.art).
Other than these main lines, we will also look at the cross-cutting restraints that we have encountered in research, such as the digital divide, integration into Facebook and digital empowerment.
