Social media can provide strong opposition to traditional cultural values and to the preconceived portrayal of women in mass media2. The objective of this article is to analyse the way in which digital platforms can lead to the social emergence of certain issues and to examine the cumulative effect produced online through these channels. Are these platforms able to create online communities and inspire positive circles of information, sharing, and participation? What are the ways through which such themes have undergone an educational transformation with regard to related communities? The primary objective is to investigate how these interactive tools contribute to the formation of a collective conscience, focusing in particular on the dimensions of ‘memory’, ‘reflection’ and ‘action’. The study also investigates the opportunities for education and training that are available on the Internet, for a more proactive critical reflection of the issue.
