Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), under its Partnership Development Programme.
The Project is investigating the relationship between gender,
privacy and equality in online social networking and is focused on
better understanding the perspectives of girls and young women in
relation to these issues.
What eGirls Project is interested in:
Girls and young women rely on a vast array of technologies to keep in
touch with their friends and family and to explore the world and their
place in it. Participating in the online world certainly lets them
share their lives with each other but it also requires a significant
amount of self-disclosure to others, simply as the price of admission.
As a result, online social spaces provide opportunities for young women
to create, expand and explore their own identities while at the same
time constructing anew what it means to “be a girl”.
