Using Technology for Feminist Action
Technology like other innovation can transform the way we do things and our lives. Can we address the issues we feel passionate about online, use social media and at the same time protect our security and privacy?
The FTX (Feminist Tech Exchange) took place in Turkey on the 18th of April 2012 prior to the start of the opening of the AWID (Association of Women in development). The FTX covered many diverse issues and was interractive. I came out of the meeting a bit more cautious about things I take for granted i.e. my mobile phone, pictures of my kids, password etc. We need to understand the technology to work with it. Also technology when used for social change can help break barriers amd provide gender justice.
