Hashtag Activism is the use of hashtags on social media platforms for internet activism. Hashtags are used to fight for or support a cause.
Vitamin Stree’s latest video speaks about Hashtag Activism and how it has changed the way we protest. It focuses on some of the most popular recent female-centric hashtags like #metoo, #bringbackourgirls, #darkisbeautiful and#unfairandlovely.
The video questions the achievements of hashtag activism ever since its inception, and breaks down the positive impact it has had on society.
Even though Hashtag Activism has its critics and not all hashtags can be successful, if used in the right way, a hashtag gives voice to the younger generations who can bring about the necessary change in society and its laws.
