Movements and campaigns have been using technology for women's rights, for articulating identity and expression around gender and sexuality, and for amplifying and growing the voices against sexual harassment and violence. We are at a point when the Take back the tech! campaign is more than 10 years old. Our movements are in as much need for creativity as we are in need of self-care. In this edition we explore the emerging and startling voices of new ideas and campaigns - from what feminist bots can do for us to delving deeper into the politics of self-care. From using the internet to explore sexuality and desire to having incredibly tough conversations about violence and harassment.
This bilingual edition is born of many conversations and moments at the two camps held in parallel in August this year (2018) at Dhulikhel, Nepal - the Take back the Tech! meet and the Feminist Tech Exchange. This extraordinary bringing-together of groups and people has facilitated a massive starburst of ideas and images that we are happy to share with you. With this edition we also inagurate our upgraded GenderIT website.
