Abstract [en]

The Women’s Spring movement started in 2015 in Brazil. It is a brand new phenomenon where Brazilian feminists are taking advantage of the potential of the Internet and social media to publicize sexism and demand respect. This thesis investigates this movement through a case study of #primeiroassedio and #meuamigosecreto, with the objective to discover who the cyberactivists are, how cyberactivism happens in that context and if it influences offline life.

A Primavera das Mulheres começou em 2015 no Brasil. É um fenômeno novo, onde feministas brasileiras aproveitam o potencial da Internet e das mídias sociais para denunciar o machismo e exigir respeito. Essa tese investiga o movimento por meio de um estudo de caso das campanhas #primeiroassedio e #meuamigosecreto, com o objetivo de descobrir quem são os ciberativistas, como o ciberativismo se dá nesse contexto e se ele tem influência na vida offline.
