Gendering ICTs: Access and Feminist Activism in China

September 8, 2015 - 10:00-12:00

Open lecture by Professor Bu Wei, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences
 
Since the 1990’s, new Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are changing our world. However, it may not result in gender equality but actually sustain or even deepen gender inequalities. This talk will discuss some key concepts and some facts regarding gender and ICTs in a Chinese context, exemplifying with cases of feminist activism since the 1990’s that illustrate how ICTs have been used and appropriated. The talk will highlight the strategic potential and need of appropriating digital technologies in order to empower women and improve gender equality in Chinese society.
