Is a feminist internet possible? How has the internet shifted the way we understand power, politics, activism and agency? Join us in a global conversation on how the internet can strengthen and better facilitate feminist activism and what you think are key issues we need to engage with and interrogate to realise its transformative potential.

How are we discussing the commodification of our bodies, behaviors, thoughts and data? How has the internet disrupted or reinforced capitalist frameworks? Is the internet enabling greater diversity of sexual expression or growing opportunities for the policing of sexuality?

Do we rely too much on the internet for our work? Does activism 2.0 simply satisfy our need to “do something” without truly effecting change?

Take part in the debate. Define and question what it takes to create a feminist internet. Fifty people from all over the world are meeting about this issue next week and will incorporate your ideas into an evolving framework.

Join the conversation all week on Twitter. #imagineafeministinternet #takebackthetech @takebackthetech
