Over the last 25 years, the feminist movement entered a new era with the emergence of the internet and social media. Despite historic under-representation of women in technology, key advances in software development and mobile innovation have been, and continue to be driven by women. This progress allowed women to better balance work and life, further career goals and boost advocacy initiatives. Critical to the success of modern feminism is the growth in female executives and thought leaders who recognize the importance of technology in continuing the fight for equality.
Feminism 2.0 is the evolution of the feminist movement in this technological age. By empowering women through digital innovation, today’s feminist movement continues to defend the rights of and improve opportunities for women worldwide. Selected speakers for this panel will discuss how Feminism 2.0 is improving opportunities for women and girls globally, despite ongoing barriers that hinder equality.
