The 33nd session of the Human Rights Council is taking place 12-30 September 2016, and will address the human rights situation in numerous countries where rights violations extend to the online environment. This session will also consider a number of thematic reports that recognise the importance of ICTs for the full realisation of human rights.
*_Each week, David Souter comments on an important issue for APC members and others concerned about the Information Society.
_The APC Women’s Rights Programme organised several activities during the 13th AWID International Forum (#AWIDForum), where more than a thousand activists, researchers and feminist techies got together between 8 and 11 September to discuss feminist futures and build collective power for rights and justice.
Version 2.0 of the Feminist Principles of the Internet is already out, and it has a new online platform that allows you to contribute to the collective construction of the Principles. Visit FeministInternet.org and help us shape the internet we want!
*_David Souter’s weekly blog for APC about the Information Society returns today from its summer/winter break.
From 8 to 11 September, in Costa do Saruípe, Brazil, we will hold a space that puts feminism – in all of its diversity and creativity – at the heart of engagement with technology, bringing together activists, researchers and techies working on advancing a feminist internet. You’ll get new ideas, inspiration and maybe even potential collaboration!
