About us

Digital Justice is a collaborative research and advocacy initiative of IT for Change and Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN) network. It focuses on re-interpreting the emerging techno-social paradigm from a Southern feminist standpoint. Bringing to the fore debates at the intersections of enduring feminist concerns about gender justice on the one hand and emerging issues in the digital frontier on the other, the project seeks to support and strengthen informed and cutting edge feminist analysis and action. It responds to the urgent need for Southern visions of transformative change in these times of paradigmatic shift, exhorting feminists from the South to engage with the political economy of data and use their knowledge and wisdom to frame the debates.
