VARGAS, Juliana  y  SARAIVA, Karla. Feminisms and social networks: (in)actions and (im)possibilities of young people from urban periphery. Práxis Educativa [online]. 2019, vol.14, n.3, pp.1188-1209.  Epub 16-Oct-2019. ISSN 1809-4309.

This article proposes to investigate the relation of a group of students from a public school in Porto Alegre (Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil) and feminism. The research was developed through discussion groups and the analyzes are based on Cultural Studies, Feminist Studies, and Youth Studies. It was possible to perceive the concern of these girls with violence against women, expressing support for feminism, but without identification with organized movements. In spite of this, the participants indicate the importance of fomenting feminism through social networks in articulation with face-to-face events and express the desire that the theme be inserted in school activities. The research made it possible to understand that feminist ideas are spreading among young women, even though they do not systematically access discussions on the subject.

Palabras clave : Feminism; Youth; Social networks.
