Ireland’s Facebook Feminists

This project is a trans-disciplinary study of the contemporary feminist movement in Ireland and its engagement with social media. The research will examine the Irish Feminist Network (IFN) as a case study, by using a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods. Cyber, feminist and social-movement theory will provide the major theoretical framework for my thesis. My findings should ultimately produce a critical insight into the feminist discourse in Ireland today.
