Recap of Digital Sisterhood’s 3/9 Tweetchat on Women’s Feminist Identity


One of the best things about hosting the Feminism Online Project events is listening to the diverse feminist voices engage in great conversation.  Last night the Digital Sisterhood monthly Tweetchat discussed why women do or do not embrace the feminist identity.  See the Twitter stream below.

Do you have any thoughts on the topic?
