IT for Change and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung
Anita Gurumurthy and Nandini Chami will be presenting a feminist action framework for the digital economy at the Global South Women's Forum 2020, during the session "The Deal We Always Wanted", co-organized by IT for Change and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung. This session seeks to highlight the urgent imperative for social movements to respond to the ongoing Big Tech-led restructuring of all sectors of the global economy and the resultant injustices, and identify feminist digital justice as the next horizon for Southern feminism in its 21st century avatar.
The feminist action framework for the digital economy that will be shared at the session has been prepared by a working group of feminists whose composition reflects geographic and age diversity and is attentive to representation from different political locations – academia, civil society, trade union movement and mainstream electoral politics. In the session design, a participatory approach has been adopted to enable respectful dialogue, debate and critical engagement with session agendas.
