A resurgence of campus activism has resulted in increased national attention to the problem of sexual violence on college campuses. Much of this attention has been credited to student activists employing social media to raise awareness about the ways they were treated when reporting sexual assault to campus administrators (Grasgreen, 2013). We highlight the voices of current activists to document the evolution of sexual assault advocacy movements and discuss the role of social media in this evolution. We argue social media provides a feminist counter-space (Yang, 2007) for sexual assault survivors to connect with each other to facilitate action.
