How technology informs my activism: A conversation with gender and technology activists in Barcelona

27 October 2014

Interviewed during the APC Member Meeting in Barcelona, Spain, gender and technology activists Anne Roth, Hilary Goldstein, Mary Githini, and Sarah Marland, talked about how technology informs their activism and what turns them on about technology.

Anne Roth is a long time media activist and one of the founders of Indymedia in Berlin, Germany. She works for the Tactical Tech Collective and she developed an interesting female database to contribute to women's representation in diverse spaces.

Hilary Goldstein is part of May First/People Link, an organisation in the United States that redefines the concept of "internet hosting service" in a collective, progressive and collaborative way.

Marie Githini is an activist from Kenya. She works in AkiraChix, an organisation that provides training, mentoring and outreach programmes to increase the number of skilled women in technology and positively impact the community.

Sarah Marland is part of the Women Human Rights Defenders International Coalition (WHRD IC), a network that supports and protects women human rights defenders worldwide in their defence of human rights.
