dc.description.abstractThis dissertation combines scholarship on public rhetorics, transnational feminisms, and digital media in order to examine and critique the ways transnational activist projects use digital media with the goal of adding excluded voices and perspectives to public discourse. I offer three case studies of activist organizations committed to transnational feminist work. In each case study, I explore the ways women use various digital platforms and rhetorical tactics in order to expand public discourse in the service of feminist goals. By intervening in dominant discourses in order to insert women's voices and feminist perspectives, these organizations' communicative work is an important part of an overall framework of transnational feminist activism in the 21st century.
