Talking Data Feminism with Catherine D’Ignazio and Lauren F. Klein

Topic: Using Gender Data
Type: Webinar
Author: data Date: April 2020

“Data Feminism is a way of thinking about data that’s informed by direct experience, commitment to action, and intersectional feminist thought. This definition acknowledges that there is an unequal distribution of power in the world.”

On April 15, Data2X convened over 300 attendees for a virtual book talk with Catherine D’Ignazio and Lauren F. Klein, the authors of the recently published book, “Data Feminism.”

About Data Feminism:
“Data Feminism offers strategies for data scientists seeking to learn how feminism can help them work toward justice, and for feminists who want to focus their efforts on the growing field of data science. But Data Feminism is about much more than gender. It is about power, about who has it and who doesn’t, and about how those differentials of power can be challenged and changed.”
