The main objective of the research is to analyze the discursive construction of cyberfeminism, contributing, on the one hand, to the understanding of the discursive-argumentative mechanisms that underpin such a world view and, on the other, to stifle the postulates of the feminist movement itself. In addition, we promote the approximation of linguistics and reflections around the concept of ethics, using the concept of moral discursive event (PAVEAU, 2015). This work outlines the specific objectives of the research: a) To contribute to the contemporary reflections on cyberfeminism, since the discursive constructions on the feminist theme go back to a historical-discursive memory of the subject about the feminine conquests in the social space; b) To corroborate with the work about the linguistic-discursive constructions about the technological mechanism determined by the hashtag, describing and analyzing its linguistic and discursive functioning, in order to understand the conditions that favor its circulation and resume in the different constructions of meaning; c) Render the notion of moral discursive event (PAVEAU, 2015) applying the notion of discursive virtue (idem) to the studies of these statements, from the understanding of these discursive constructions as condensers of a moralizing aim. Presenting these brief notes on the possibilities of analysis to be undertaken on the construction of the moral discursive event that permeates the cyberfeminist movement, which takes shape from the study of technopalavra (PAVEAU, 2017), we intend to explain the proficuity, comprehensiveness and relevance of the research, not only for the studies of the discourse, but for the human sciences as a whole, since the proposed corpus mobilizes knowledge of Linguistics, History, Sociology, and Communication.
