Adrija Dey examines the online gender activism and role of Indian immigrants who physically could not be at events and took to social media to voice their opinion and contribute to the process of change. When talking about the use of ICTs for gender activism in India, the vast digital divide that exists in India must be taken into consideration. Additionally, it is difficult to organise and strategise such a decentralised movement, and steps need to be taken to establish vital connections and collaborations in order to keep the new gender movement alive.
