We are a group of individuals and organisations dedicated to movement building, young women’s leadership, sexuality and bodily integrity, LBTQ rights, and feminist politics of the internet.
We aim to bridge feminist leadership and collectives of women’s rights activists and between activists for learning and support, solidarity and sustainability; Engage in Feminist Epistemologies as a process to collectively produce new and diverse knowledge that dismantles patriarchy, challenges the status quo and sets new agendas; Advocate for recognition of sexuality as bodily autonomy and human rights rather than prevention of diseases and Engage with the internet as a political space; we recognise that online violence is a manifestation of offline violence and we build and promote a digital movement that addresses such phenomena.
