Working alongside feminist activists, this project aims to investigate how grassroots mobilisation in the Southern Cone countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Uruguay) affects policy decisions and navigates intense gender backlash. I am also interested in right-wing counter movements and their use of social media.
