Take Control of Technology to End Gender-Based Violence

Whose streets? Ours! Witness Silencing. Occupy. Create. 25 Nov - 10 Dec.

Take Back the Tech! is a campaign that reclaims the internet and women's often ignored herstory with technology, exploring and encouraging the creative use of digital technologies to denounce and eliminate online gender-based violence (GBV). Its name echoes back to the Take Back the Night marches all over the world, where women reclaimed public streets as their own, especially at night when they were told to stay inside because it wasn't safe. Today, the streets of the internet are increasingly inseparable from the streets of our lives and our communities. The offline and online are fused together, just as online GBV is an integral part of the structural GBV we know so well – but at hyper speed and digitised.

Whether it is on the street, in our workplaces or on the internet, our right to be there is always questioned or we are made to feel uncomfortable, that we do not belong. Unless, of course, we follow the rules, only venture out in daylight and to certain places, avoid miniskirts and getting loud. From sexist remarks, unsolicited dick pics, or death threats – GBV attempts to silence us, push us out and make us unsafe in order to have an excuse to protect and control us. And yet, we dance in the streets. We have each other’s backs. We occupy all of these spaces with fun and furious creativity.
