This paper presents an analysis of the construction of female gender identity in British and Spanish personal weblog writing. More precisely, this study offers an insight into the way white female adolescents conceptualize gender roles in twenty-first century society, especially in terms of self-expression. Inspection of this British and Spanish blog corpus suggests that British and Spanish teenage females' gain of self-esteem is still at an early stage as far as interpersonal relationships are concerned. The results highlight that both cultures seem to head towards a particular schema of androgyny which throws further light on gender role parameters. In addition, this culturally based redefinition reveals two different social phenomena resulting from the fight for gender equality in both societies.
