Our experiences of privacy are changing as a result of two contingent factors: feminist challenges to the liberal public / private divide and changes in information flow as a result of computer mediated communication. This paper theorises some of the feminist implications of these changes. In particular, it draws upon the first two of Spinoza's three kinds of knowledge as a starting point to conceptualising what we mean by harm in privacy cases, such as "revenge porn".
