Abstract

In this chapter, Trott examines how Indigenous Australian women are using Twitter to challenge post-racial and postfeminist sensibilities, particularly around issues of whiteness, sexualization, and individualism. She analyzes how two Indigenous Australian feminist writers use social and digital media to critically intervene in post-identity discourses and how they are modelling a form of resistance that mobilizes an explicit anti-racist critique. Trott argues that in doing so, these Indigenous writers call attention to structural conditions, such as colonialism, that are often masked by postfeminist media culture. Consequently, this chapter maps how social media like Twitter can be used by marginalized women to engage in cultural critique and to build solidarity amongst women.
