Check out the first part of the conversation in our storify! There's more to be said, so jump right in @takebackthetech, #imagineafeministinternet. Let's keep imagining and talking as we work for change.

Is a feminist internet possible? On 13-17 April, APC is bringing together over 50 women's rights, internet rights and sexual rights activists to think critically about gender, sexuality and the internet. We invite you to take part in our pre-meeting global conversation this week on the hashtag #imagineafeministinternet.

Here are some of our key questions:

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.

Join the conversation all week on Twitter, starting 7 April. #imagineafeministinternet #takebackthetech @takebackthetech
