The Feminist Library opens this year’s Feminism & Tech series with a focus on the importance of Feminist Consciousness in the conversation, with an introduction to the concept of Consciousness Raising (CR) and feminist critique of technology from Feminist Library’s/Breaking the Frame’s Gail Chester and Magda Oldziejewska.

They will also be welcoming speakers from inspirational#womenintech initiatives, including Inspiring Women’s Laura de Silva and AnitaB.org‘s Assel Altayeva.

We are inviting you to join the discussions, try consciousness raising and help design new initiatives for tackling the problems that women still face in tech.
