Participants at the Feminist Tech Exchange will put new skills and knowledge into practice at the FTX Hub during the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID) 2008 Forum on Movement Building 14 – 17 November, also to be held in Cape Town with more than 1500 in attendance.
The FTX Hub offers a central meeting place during the AWID Forum for any Forum participant to find out about the interconnections of technology, communication rights, and feminism. They can build on their tech skills, blog, learn how women in different corners of the world use the internet for advocacy, or go on a tech hunt for the online campaign to end violence against women, Take Back the Tech.(http://takebackthetech.net). The Hub will spotlight the critical role that ICTs can play in movement building.
