Abstract [en]

This study investigates the #MeToo as a social movement and cyber feminist and consciousness-raising activism. By accepting Foucault’s notion of knowledge and power, this study investigates how the #MeToo movement can impact the Swedish law enforcement and the political agenda. It explores whether consciousness-raising activism in social media such as #MeToo, regarding legal sexual offences, is compatible with the legal framework. It questioning if the Swedish justice system reproduces discourse that is reducing the female perspective of sexual violence in verdicts connected to #MeToo and how the collision between activism and the legal framework might affect victims of sexual violence. Through a critical discourse analysis using the three dimensional model of Fairclough, discourse produced and reproduced by the district court has been analyzed in verdicts connected to #MeToo. The aim of most social movements is empowerment of the weak. This is also the main goal with speak outs of #MeToo and not primarily criminal prosecution. However, the intersection of the Swedish legal framework and online speak outs of #MeToo with the purpose of e.g. establishing norms of support, empathy and acceptance may produce different effects. In order for activists to successfully mobilize online it is important to analyze its implications in social change. Little research has to my knowledge been made on online social movements’ impact on discourse produced and reproduced by law enforcement agencies in Sweden, nor globally, which is how this study contributes to previous research of the field of communication for development
