The FTX will explore feminist practices and politics of technology and raise awareness on the critical role of communication rights in the struggle to advance women’s rights worldwide. Recognising the historical and current contributions of women in shaping technology, the Feminist Tech Exchange grounds technology in women’s realities and lives.
Five simultaneous training tracks led by a community of trainers from all latitudes will offer participants hands-on experience in information and communications technologies (ICT) for activism. Daily thematic dialogues will examine communication rights issues and how they relate to women’s rights, including violence against women, participatory governance and women’s ownership of knowledge. Participants can also share the knowledge, skills and capacity they bring to the event in open exchange sessions throughout the three-day exchange.
The FTX is co-organised by APC WNSP, AWID and local partner Women’sNet
