Cyberfeminism Issues in Digital Platform

Roseline Roseline, Lasmery R. M Girsang


In this 21st century digital era, technology has massively developed and influenced the traditional feminist movement. Cyberfeminism creates a safe cyberspace for women to discuss various multicultural issues in the digital public sphere, especially in social media. This research uses a qualitative approach, including the virtual ethnography (netnography) method from @rahasiagadis on Instagram and collecting data through interviews with informants. This research shows that @rahasiagadis is a platform where every woman can discuss, express themselves, and speak out on sensitive topics about multicultural issues; also a platform where they can get information and learn more about women themselves.
