Women21Century is an open-source data feminist project that has received contributions from all around the world.

W21 is an on-going participatory art project focusing on post-feminism and intersectional practice in art, science, culture, and technology. We aim to map feminist practice and to write a collaborative manifesto for the digital era, with deep considerations of gender, class or race.

The speakers will be asked three questions:

Does AI Need a Body? “How do gender and dis/embodiment play out in the spaces you inhabit? In your work? Is it possible, and if so how, to define what it means to be a ‘woman’ in the 21st Century? What would you say to future generations of women?
