While the critical role of new media technologies in facilitating new social movements has been widely debated, fewer studies have collected empirical data on online campaigns in the Arab uprisings or asked activists themselves their views on the efficacy of online versus offline modes of social mobilization. In this chapter, Nelia Hyndman-Rizk contributes to the conversation by comparing online and offline women’s rights activism in Lebanon and examining two campaigns that employ both modes of social mobilization. The chapter asks whether new media technology has enabled the Lebanese women’s movement to enter a new phase in its development.
