Take Back the Tech! Using Technology to End Violence Against Women.

The Association for Progressive Communications Women’s Networking Support Program proposes a tech-focus for the ongoing 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence campaign.  APC’s Women’s Programme calls on users of the radio, television, internet, emails and mobile phones to Take Back the Tech.

It is our right to shape, define, participate, use and share knowledge, information and technology, and to create digital spaces that are safe and equal. Take Back the Tech! calls all users of information and communications technologies (ICTs) to take control of technology and consciously use it to change unequal power relations.

Take Back the Tech! will be happening all over the world, including in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cambodia, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Republic of Congo, Malaysia, Mexico, Pakistan, Philippines, South Africa, Uganda as part of APC WNSP’s efforts to achieve Millenium development Goal 3 to promote gender equality and empower women.
