In the new media era, the convenience, speed, and low access threshold of the Internet provide channels and access to women's originally compressed discourse, releasing women's discourse to a certain extent. This paper focuses on the manifestations of women's discourse being liberated in the new media context, what problems still exist, and provides relevant strategies to solve them. The purpose of this paper is to reveal the innovations, difficulties, and breakthrough methods of women's discourse in the development of the Internet, and to provide references for subsequent research. This paper will discuss and study women's discourse as the main research object through literature analysis, typical case analysis, and data comparison of previous reports. It can be concluded that although women's discourse has been developed and expanded in the new media environment, it is still suffering from problems such as patriarchal social gaze and alienation of self-expression, which need improvement from multiple parties such as media, society, and women themselves to improve.
