August 20, 2019

Dr. Charlotte Webb

Dr. Charlotte Webb founded the Feminist Internet, a non-profit organization on a mission to make the internet a more equal space for women and other marginalized groups.

Many of society’s inequalities are encoded in the internet’s structures, processes and communities. Examples are online abuse against women on digital platforms, lack of workforce diversity in the tech sector, or biased data collection reinforcing privileges.

In this episode, Charlotte will share how the Feminist Internet is tackling these issues through a range of initiatives like building a feminist Alexa, educating people on artificial intelligence bias and raising awareness of gender inequality in technology.
