DonesTech / Código Lela
an activist research about the current relations between womyn and technologies.
From the start, we have been researching and taking actions to know how womyn access technologies, which software and hardware they use, under which conditions they work, which practices they develop with technologies and, finally, what are their main wishes and dreams for the future.
Our research and practice inscribes itself inside a cyberfeminism that challenges and interrogates the sexism embedded inside scientifically and technological practices and theories (González García, M y Pérez Sedeño, E, 2002). We reveal again the non-neutral character of technologies as artifacts that mediates our relation to the world by establishing possible ways of building upon it, and at the same time their development impedes the emergence of possible alternative pathways. In that sense, our research meet with a set of cyberfeminist reflections stating that through this interrogation we challenge the control and power mechanisms rooted inside technologies, and we contribute to a common empowerment of womyn by trying to subvert the gender relations at one of its core.
