LOOM is a Nepal-based feminist organisation that works towards harnessing the collective power of women through multi-generational activism especially around sexual rights and sexual citizenship. It aims to enhance young women’s leadership capacities by engaging them in a collective process of producing new and diverse feminist knowledges that challenge the status quo. One of the ways it does so is by engaging with the internet as a political space which can be used to further a sexual rights agenda.

Here, Kumud Rana is in conversation with the Executive Chair of LOOM, Jyotsna Maskay, and independent researcher, producer and trainer, Indu Nepal, to talk about two studies they conducted on the internet and sexual expression and online gender based violence which were both commissioned by LOOM.
