Between the crisis brought about by the anti-gender backlash, the strength of new voices speaking about intersectionality and gender expression from the LGBTI communities in different parts of the world - NOW marks a moment when we should look at what should be our priorities and concerns in relation to internet and technology.
The world is suddenly and radically changed. But this is not the radical change that we as feminists, activists, thinkers and campaigners had hoped for. Here we share what we believe is important for us to continue working towards a feminist internet as a part of our collective and hopeful futures.

What we need is a critical examination of the tools available and their underlying techno-politics so we can create community alternatives for feminist communication.
