The Not-So-Secret Feminist Agenda

I put together this talk as part of Design+Exclusion. It’s about the ways in which women get told to be quiet, and some of the thought behind our approach to inclusivity with Technically Speaking.

Watch it here.

This was a challenging talk to put together because part of it involved looking up some of the things people have said to me online that have not been so nice and talking about them. But I think it’s important to highlight the ways in which we get silenced – because it’s easy to ignore, and to surface the hard and continuous work that goes into creating space for under-indexed folk to speak up – because it’s easy to overlook.

I hope you like it.
