Description In this discussion, we will try to adress the complex issues of the relation between tech, gender, and power, from a historical point of view, and from the position of people who are trying to find concrete ways to improve current problems. In this talk and roundtable, we will have a look at different theories constructed through time and then try to understand what political and practical initiatives come from history and what are emerging now to move things in directions that would open up new possibilities.

We will follow this (short) theoretical discussion by a (we hope) broad discussion about what's happening now : What are the initiatives that are emerging ? Come and share your story and your inspiring initiatives! From the first Feminist Server Summit, to Intersectional Feminist, Queer and Trans Hackerspaces, to the upcoming Eclectic Tech Carnival (ETC 2014), we want to hear from you!
