#metoo – a topic for International Womens’ Day tomorrow

The #metoo campaign is continuing to showcase how Social Media can be used as a tool for transformative social and political change. Social media has effected how we consume information. Without the need for a publisher, Social Media platforms are helping to democratize information access.  Social Media enables information to bypass the hurdles of distribution, distance, time and cost to get information out to the international and local community.  And it’s instant – with the click of a button.

‘Women’s voices’ are being ‘heard’ on a global level by the use of hashtags such as #metoo. Social Media, once seen as merely a popular culture construct, is now being used as a global tool for socio-political discourse.  The #metoo movement is successfully spreading it’s message via the mainstream media prompted by the global attention it gained via Social Media.
