In regard to this topic, the differentiation between the notion of sexism and gender-based prejudices are of key importance for feminist activism these days. What is more, the posts on the chosen blogs show that fighting inequality based on gender is not only about dealing with some global things but also about the changes that are sometimes imperceptible but not less meaningful.The main similarity between the two sites chosen for analysis is the responsibility they take on themselves in regard to what they are writing about. In particular, the content of the blogs suggests that both sites consider treating everyone with equal respect important; also, protecting women and standing up against sexism is in the focus. In a narrower sense, the two sites both agree that women’s reproductive rights should not be restricted. They argue that women should have the ability to choose whether, how, and when they have or not have children. The sites also highlight the idea that women’s reproductive rights are affected at different levels, such as the economy, medicine, education, criminal justice, government, community, and others. For feminists who contribute to both Everyday Feminism and Feministing, the right to choose when it comes to birth control and abortions is crucial and, contrary to the received opinion, these choices are well-informed and well-grounded.The use of social media has played a significant role in the modern feminist movement as well as in how it is perceived in the society. In fact, social media gives young women an opportunity to use their voices in a larger audience. Social media makes feminist activism more democratic, which means that anyone can participate in it. It removes geographical barriers and, thus, makes it possible for millions to unite as it facilitates public dialogues independent of the participants’ location. One of the examples of the so-called networked feminism is the wide use of hashtags that gives the possibility to groups messages on the issue and, consequently, to make it easier to get the information and check the messages which include it.
