Feminist Internet exists to advance internet equalities for women and other marginalised groups through creative, critical practice.
Internet equalities means equal rights to freedom of expression, privacy, data protection and internet access regardless of race, class, gender, gender identity, age, belief or ability.
The internet holds huge potential for liberation and political transformation. However many of society’s inequalities are encoded in its structures, processes and communities. Whether it’s the predominance of women suffering from online trolling, the gendered censorship of bodies, the dominance of maleness in the tech industry, or gender biases reproduced in technologies like Alexa, there are many issues to address. Feminist Internet is here to intervene and ensure an equal and just internet for all.
