ICTs for Feminist Movement Building: Activist Toolkitis designed for anyone who is interested in social change. For many activists, movement builders and community-based organizers, harnessing the power of information and communications technologies (ICTs) to speak out against injustice, violence and inequality can be challenging. For example, how to push back against mainstream media’s silencing of black women’s voices or messaging for a local campaign for reproductive healthcare.ICTs for Feminist Movement Buildingisn’t just about how to use communications tools effectively, but emphasizes the interaction and connection between on-the-ground organizing and digital activism. Published byJASS Southern Africa, in partnership withWomen’s Netand theAssociation for Progressive Communications(APC), this toolkit is a practical guide for activists who want to understand ICTs, influence how they are developed and build responsive, sustainable and effectivecommunications strategiesthat support movement building work, amplify women’s voices and experiences, and inspire the world to take powerful action.
