The vulnerable video blogger

In “The Vulnerable Video Blogger: Promoting Social Change through Intimacy,”
Patricia G. Lange examines “…videos made by women video bloggers who explore ideas about self-image, diversity, and helping Internet strangers.” In the last article in Part I: Cyberactivism and Online Movement Making, Lange provides examples of instances where video bloggers have shared intimate details, asserting that, in doing so, women video bloggers are able to create an atmosphere in which “greater public discourse is promoted in the minds of viewers, in the attitudes of video bloggers themselves, and publicly through the circulation of issues raised in the videos and on blogs.”
