Girls, Girls Studies, & Platform Feminism: Feminism in the Digital Age

Feminist studies have been largely adult-centric, leaving out girls and their perspectives. This paper aims to explore the inclusion of girls in current feminist discussions and highlight the perspective of girls and their relationship to feminism as built through social media platforms. An understanding of girls’ relationship with feminism as corralled and constructed in the digital space may be a key component to current feminist scholarship and in achieving gender equality.
