The solidarity of female students on Twitter is a social movement; a network of informal interactions between a plurality of individuals and groups engaged in a political or cultural conflict on the basis of shared collective identity (Diani,1992), initiated by social media, held to make a change in the gender hierarchy rooted in society…
