Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN) and IT For Change’s Working Group on Feminist Digital Justice was active between August 2021-December 2022, and the group’s meetings, discussions, and collaborations generated a wealth of synergy and insightful critique along the way. Find below a timeline of how the group produced the Declaration and the Background Paper. Also, know more about the convening team and the Working Group members.
In August 2021, the Working Group members met for the first time and began charting the institutional and technological design frameworks needed – within the context of platforms, Big Data, and artificial intelligence – to foster gender justice in the emerging digital paradigm.
Continuing the discussion from the previous month, in September 2021 the Working Group members listed issues concerning digitality and digital technologies in their regions.
In March 2022, the Working Group members met in regional subgroups – the Asia-Pacific-EU-Africa group and the Latin America group – on account of the convenience of meeting across similar time zones. In these meetings, the groups brainstormed, discussed, and inputted their ideas for the Declaration.
