The digital sphere, especially social media, is perceived as a new form of public sphere where individuals can share and circulate information and participate in formal and informal democratic processes albeit in the context of echo chambers and confirmation biases. Gender in the Digital Sphere explores how we represent, express, and engage with the digital world via the lens of gender. Each chapter touches on one of the three pillars of engagement, expression, or representation in relation to the digital world, and themes range from social media, body image and identity to feminist activism to gender and digital narratives. The contributors raise important questions about the impact of digital media in everyday life and make connections between theory and everyday accounts of gender and technology.
