GenderIT.org is a project of the Women's Rights Programme of the Association for Progressive Communications
The site is meant to be a think tank OF and FOR women's rights, sexual rights and internet rights activists, academics, journalists and advocates from a range of disciplines and contexts. GenderIT.org provides a space for reflection, influence and advocacy on internet policy and culture, to help ensure that they meet women's needs and do not infringe on their rights.
The site maps the intersections between women’s and sexual rights issues and internet rights issues, and concentrates on bringing voices from the global South into the discussion of these issues, since the discussion is often dominated by voices from the North.
A bit of history
Launched in 2006, GenderIT.org is a groundbreaking resource site that provides feminist reviews and commentary on internet policy and culture. It started as a site monitoring policy developments on ICT and gender, and from its beginnings has been unique. Initially it was one of the first sites looking at ICT policy through a gender lens. Many years later, GenderIT.org remains a unique space for its focus on the global South, its focus on those working at the grassroots level (grounded in the experience of the women in the society in which they live), and its emphasis on both advocacy and social justice.
