Introduction
My PhD project is about the #MeToo movement in Sweden, and how its messages and frames were shaped in and by social media platforms.

What frames of gender justice, and whose voices, were amplified and silenced respectively by the technical setup and business logic of the social media platforms - how did #MeToo emerge as a hashtag assemblage?
