#ChooseToChallenge patriachy

We #ChooseToChallenge patriachy, a system of social stratification and differentiation on a gendered basis which provides material and opportunity advantages to men while simultaneously placing severe constraints on lives and activities of womxn. Patriarchy is embedded within the online social fabric whether it is the predominance of womxn facing trolling, gendered censorship of bodies, male dominance in the technology industry or stereotypical representations reproduced in technologies like Alexa, Siri.

“Recognition of the harm that patriarchy has to people and planet does not mean that men are wrong and women are right; rather it’s a call for new organisational forms and for relishing gender differences within a context of equality”.
