Abstract

Alternative media is becoming a platform for the empowerment of the society on a whole. Women have got in this way a new space to share their views. This virtual space is giving her power by segregating from the real space; where she has to face the real challenges in the form of eve-teasing, stalking, harassment etc. Private settings in the social networking sites must be very popular among the Indian girls, who face stalking as obvious crime. Private settings have provided a shelter to the girls at social network sites to distract unwanted attention. It might have allowed many girls to sign in into the social networking sites besides it also reflects the complications of real world that alternative media allow girls to avoid online. It would be interesting to study the private settings of a group of girls and boys of any class. How differently these setting are being used by boys and girls. The research paper focuses on whether alternative media is helping in empowering women where she feels free to share anything she wants or still she feel restricted with the social bounding.
