Indian women finding voice and visibility through social media support


Sagarika Dash

Social media has brought a social reformation for Indian women who has been otherwise restricted and supressed since ages in the name of societal norm and traditions. It has given our women a platform to discuss issues that otherwise considered too ‘sensitive’ in the public domain of Indian society. Their presence, visibility and voice in the social media has led to women empowerment, cyber activism and a rise of new ‘feminism’. Indian women can be seen to be more vocal, confident and expressive due to the existing social media’s support.
The paper will look into such social media events and campaigns to establish the fact that social media support has successfully empowered the women giving them a voice and visibility. It will further discuss how the social media participation has helped the Indian women to raise concern and voice on issues related to them.
