The politicization of Mumsnet. [Webinar]

Pedersen, Sarah

Authors



Abstract

In this webinar, Sarah Pedersen discusses her new book, The Politicization of Mumsnet. This book investigates the growing politicization of Mumsnet and its use by politicians to influence middle-class women in the UK. The site's discussion topics go far beyond traditional 'mothering' subjects, and encompass politics, feminism and current affairs. Understood as a safe space for gender-critical voices, the site has spawned real-life activism and continues to be both praised and attacked for its support of free speech on controversial subjects.
