Some time ago we started saying that the Internet isn’t neutral. Neither are technologies in general. It isn’t neutral respecting the software, social media… nor is it for activism. Montse Boix says “their are a lot of people that dedicate themselves to technology but there are very few, unfortunately, that sum up technology with a social point of view and there are even less people that do this with feminism as well”. This is a huge challenge.
Montse Boix sums up the term cyberfeminism by “doing feminist activism on line”. The intention is not only to increase the number of women on line, rather than having this inclusion come about from a clear feminist political approach.
There is a long history of advances toward hacking patriarchy “Cyberfeminists have already understood the importance of combining efforts in technological education as crucial for women. But this education needs to be put in context with in a critical feminist analyses and a discourse about women, web culture and politics, and the economy of pan-capitalistic labor”.
