The author presents a case study of the digital storytelling (DST) project at the Pathways for Women’s Empowerment Research Consortium. Pathways undertook DST as a new research tool to articulate how women strategize and experience positive change in their daily lives in Bangladesh. She analyses the relation between DST and feminist research, and evaluates its capacity to represent women’s diverse experiences given the genre’s formalities and narrative preoccupations. This study aims to counteract the tendency within the DST movement to propagate digital stories as complete, “authentic” voices. She makes the case that DST should be recognized as a co-creative process rather than independent authoring.
