Abstract

Selfies by women and female photography has been used for digital activism. In the self-portraits, or selfies used in social media, women are active participants and through the dissemination and the sharing of images (and accompanying messages) there is an act of solidarity to raise awareness of particular issues. I will look at the impact of photography which has led to a rising female presence and empowerment through social media. Furthmore, I will examine feminist representational politics for social activism in the Asian region and how this has engaged with wider social movements such as #me too.
