Abstract

In a time of flourishing social media, networking, and Web 2.0 technologies, it is critical for feminist educators and university women’s centers to expand our definitions of activism. Furthermore, we need to expand our ways of thinking about meanings and definitions of virtual “space” as a place for students to gain agency, foster political and feminist consciousness, and enhance creative expression. This presentation will explain the motivation to weave such technologies into Abby’s House programming efforts as well as highlight different web tools used to convey critical information to the WOU community.
