Take Back The Tech! is a global campaign that connects the issue of violence against women to information and communications technologies. It’s campaign to end violence against women, which started on November 25th and runs until December 10th asks people to take daily actions that explore an issue of violence against women and its interconnection with communication rights, such as the right to privacy, freedom of expression and the right to information. The actions approach different communication platforms – online and off – in creative and tactical ways.
To participate, Take Back the Tech! asks you to take one action a day, or choose from actions that you feel strongly about. You can also commit to just taking one action throughout the 16 days. Organise with your friends and community to take action. Engage in issues of violence against women and technology. Learn and play with new communications tools. And in the process, take control of technology for activism to end violence against women.
Just don’t forget to share your action and grow the campaign!
