>From 25 Nov to 10 Dec, the Take Back The Tech! Campaign
(www.takebackthetech.net [ http://www.takebackthetech.net ]) calls on women and
men to take control of technology to protect the right to freedom of expression
and information. Since it began in 2006, people in more than 30 countries have
used the internet and other technology to fight violence against women. This
year more than sixty new women's rights groups —winners of the Take Back the
Tech!Fund ([ http://www.apc.org/en/node/11239/ ]) — will join the campaign.
Grant winners include a group of young black lesbians in South Africa who are
documenting violence against lesbian women and monitoring reported court cases.
Hate crimes against lesbians is a huge but almost invisible issue in South
Africa. This is part of APC’s work towards achieving the third Millennium
Development Goal on equality for women. Find out more about the Take Back the
Tech! Fund winners from Argentina, Brazil, Congo, Mexico, South Africa and seven
other countries.
