Body MattersFeminist Media Studies (2011)
AbstractAn essay is presented on genderscapes, the physical conditions of women's lives that challenge the notion of a virtual disembodied self in cyberspace as people focus on social networking, tweeting and texting. Hidden beneath cyberscapes are what the author terms genderscapes as more women are reportedly becoming victims of injustice including domestic violence, and women's bodies experiencing real pain. The author discusses materiality in terms of economics, social power and opportunity which lead to corporeality.
