In “Digital Feminist Activism,” Kaitlynn Mendes and Jessica Ringrose dispute the generalization that “engaging in digital activism is easy and banal, or a form of ‘low-intensity’ activism” — at least in the case of #MeToo (38). They argue instead that participation in #MeToo is “affectively charged” and “often traumatic” for the individuals who identify with the hashtag and share their stories of sexual assault online. What do you think? Is participation in #MeToo a form of ‘low-intensity’ activism? Or is it something more substantive and transformative?
