The Angsty Feminists in Tech Initiative

The Angsty Feminists in Tech Initiative is a web project made for and by feminists in tech. Our feminism is intersectional. We celebrate and recognise that we are standing on the shoulders of giants, the activists that came before us, whose work led to the rights for us to work, vote, have a voice, and retain our human dignity.

We do not tolerate prejudice, discrimination, or hate speech that is sexist, racist, classist, ableist, homo/bi/trans/queerphobic, or discriminatory based on religion. We champion active inclusion of our most vulnerable and oppressed communities.
