Established by the web subculture, the expression “Social justice warrior” refers to new kind of activists who seem to get offended over nothing and never miss an opportunity to grab their keyboard to proclaim it loud and clear. Ultra reactive, they use their voice on social networks to attack speeches that they consider racist, misogynistic, speciesist or even classist. Hypersensitive or fierce, heroes or executioners: who is behind the caricature? What motivates them, and above all, how does their approach fit into a social project in the 21st century? Directly concerned by the name, Judith Lussier plunges into the heart of the phenomenon, questions its limits and sets out to meet these individuals who are so keen to defend their ideals of social justice that they sometimes end up making themselves sick. .
