Abstract: This paper represents a comprehensive analysis of the sentiment behind the revolutionary social movement, “Feminism” and its recent improvements in the digital scope with the advent of the fourth wave of Feminism. Social Media platforms like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook have provided with tools that are optimized to propagate Digital Feminism. Hashtag Activism has emerged in the recent years which received mixed inputs from the community. Here, we analyze the sentiment behind the posts that carry respective hashtags and understand the varying intensities of emotion and subjectivity of matter that map onto the polarity of features that the fourth wave currently resides over, under observing the eye of Computational Social Science. The platform of Social Media used in the paper is relatively increasing in demand, which is Instagram.
