November 10th

Dialogue 2: Hardwiring Communication Rights and Women's Rights

November 11th

9:00am – 10:30am (GMT +2)

This session will be centered on the intersections between the working/advocacy topics of the women that come to the FTX in relation to communications rights. Also, this was thought as a way to promote the strategic thought and use of technology in the women’s movement. Hence, we'll have 10 working spaces with break-out groups discussing on these issues and coming back to a final plenary where speakers will provide a final reflection on communication rights and violence against women, telecommunication policies, politics and access to knowledge.

November 12th

This session will set a background regarding how far we’ve come in the area of women’s rights and technology. Our invited speakers will present on women’s rights and technology, using the graphic timeline and placing the FTX as one of the milestones of this continuum that has contributed to the advancement of a feminist practice of technology. Also, it will be a space for participants to share their FTX experience in each of the training tracks.
