DAY 3 | BLURRED LINES | CLEAR CONVERSATION

When it comes to social media, how private is private and how public is public? Since we access digital spaces through gadgets, our participation and interaction is mediated through a platform and interface. We are in private and public spaces at once. You might sit behind a computer screen in your office or flip on your phone from the confines of your bedroom to enter the online world. 
 

DÍA 1 | DÍA INTERNACIONAL DE LA ELIMINACIÓN DE LA VIOLENCIA CONTRA LA MUJER | LA PRIVACIDAD ES MI DERECHO

Únete a ¡Dominemos la tecnología! para exigir nuestro derecho a la privacidad, un componente fundamental de la eliminación de la violencia contra las mujeres. La vigilancia se está convirtiendo en la norma, en tanto los gobiernos insisten en que renunciar a la privacidad es necesario para la seguridad. Las mujeres de todo el mundo estamos siendo monitoreadas por nuestros esposos, compañeros y padres para nuestra propia protección, pero esta “protección” nos impide tomar nuestras propias decisiones. También permite que los abusadores nos encuentren y nos controlen.
 

DAY 1 | INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ELIMINATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN | PRIVACY IS MY RIGHT

Today marks the start of the 16 Days of a Activism against Gender-based violence. Every year, we make a global commitment on 25th November - the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women - to strengthen our collective efforts to end violence against women everywhere in the world.

Take Back the Tech! kick starts our campaign by calling for a recognition to our right to privacy - and exploring the critical role that privacy plays in ending violence against women.
