While gender equality is still a distant goal, writer Jill Castellano shows how social media, hashtags in particular, is helping the world to bridge the distance. Her fact-substantiated and impassioned story on Forbes.com lists the most viral feminist hashtag campaigns in the past year that have magnified “calls for gender equality across the globe”.

Emma Watson’s UN #HeforShe campaign, which lays part of the onus of women’s empowerment on men, #WhyIStayed, the rallying support for domestic abuse, #IllRideWithYou, the widespread assurance of protection from Australians to Muslim women and actor Reese Witherspoon’s plea asking interviewers to #AskHerMore on the red carpet, were all “an integral part of mobilizing campaigns in support of women,” she writes.

“Feminist hashtag campaigns are a vehicle to unite millions of people behind the goal of gender equality that earlier generations could barely have imagined,” Castellano concludes, “With the almighty hashtag, everyone and anyone can be an activist and a supporter.”
