Abstract

In this article, based on the debates of feminist criminology in Brazil, we aim to analyze feminist campaigns that use technopolitics as a strategy to face gender violence. These campaigns are exposed through the disputes between emancipatory and punitive claims. We propose to use hashtags as feminist analysis tools to understand the ambivalence present in vulnerability. In order to do so, we will use the hashtags #ChegaDeFiuFiu, #MeuPrimeiroAssedio, and #MeuAmigoSecreto to analyze new meanings of justice promoted by the feminist movements, which appear not to prioritize the use of punitive power. In the same way, we seek from the #EleNão movement, recognized as feminist democratic technopolitics, to reformulate the possibilities of analyzing the Brazilian criminological field.

En este artículo, nos basamos en los debates de la criminología feminista en Brasil, y nos proponemos analizar campañas feministas que utilizan la tecnopolítica como estrategia para hacer frente a la violencia de género, y que quedan expuestas a través de las disputas entre las afirmaciones emancipatorias y las punitivas. Proponemos usar etiquetas (hashtags) como herramienta de análisis feminista para comprender la ambivalencia presente en la vulnerabilidad. Para conseguir ese objetivo, utilizaremos las etiquetas #ChegaDeFiuFiu, #MeuPrimeiroAssedio y #MeuAmigoSecreto para analizar nuevos significados de la justicia promovidos por los movimientos feministas, que parece que no priorizan el uso del poder punitivo. Igualmente, a partir del movimiento #EleNão, reconocido como tecnopolítica democrática feminista, nos proponemos reformular las posibilidades para examinar el campo criminológico brasileño.
