Abstract: 

This thesis explores the intersections of online media and popular feminist discourse by looking at how young women perceive feminism and are engaging with feminist media blogs - that is, blogs with a focus on women-positive and feminist perspectives that challenge narrow mainstream media messages. Employing a qualitative methodology, this thesis investigates the subjective experiences of young women (18 and 19 years old) who read, and engage with, online feminist media blogs including: Jezebel, Feministing, Racialicious, Ms. Magazine and Bitch Media.
