The Feminist Internet is a collective whose work pushes to create a fairer and more equal internet for all.

The team were tasked to design a workshop for UAL’s Creative Computing Institute that would allow participants to prototype feminist conversational interfaces. There were three questions that had to be answered. WTF is a feminist conversation? What kind of exchange between a human and a technology would qualify as ‘feminist’? How could the feminist nature of the technology be measured? Dr Charlotte Webb will delve into the learning programme and how participants developed their ideas of a Feminist Alexa.
