In 30 minutes, we are hosting a lunch talk with Gisela Pérez de Acha, a
Mexican lawyer and activist who specializes in free speech and gender
rights within the digital world. The talk will be live-streamed via our Youtube
channel <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FeBVOd6HWs> and recorded.
*About the talk*:
"Can we design better platforms to counter online gendered violence? The
feminist experience in Latin America"
The internet has made collaboration and access to knowledge easier for many
people around the world. However, many current internet technologies fail
large parts of society: social media platforms and other websites and
services continue to harbor online gendered violence.
In her talk, Gisela Pérez de Acha will demonstrate that the female
experience of online communication needs to be radically improved to ensure
women can safely participate in public discourse and exercise their right
to freedom of expression. Showcasing feminist projects from Latin America,
Gisela will illustrate the changes to internet infrastructure she and other
digital rights activists want to see to ensure women's rights are respected
in the digital context.
