We are delighted to announce this year's WAN IWD lunchtime event consisting of two sessions. The first is a guest speaker talk by Josie Fraser. Josie is a social and educational technologist who currently works as Senior Technology Adviser on HM Government’s National Technology Team. Josie is a popular keynote speaker, for example, please see her talk ‘In the valley of the trolls’ forhttps://altc.alt.ac.uk/2016/sessions/keynote-josie-fraser/#gref

Josie’s IWD talk at BU will focus on cyber bullying and harassment of women and girls.

Title: Speaking Out Online: ‘all your base are belong to us...’

This talk, quoting a well known meme, will look the current and emerging range of forms of violence against girls and women (VAGW) online, arguing that the expansion of VAGW has followed (and continues to follow) the global embedding of mobile, gaming and internet technologies into daily life. In the context of recent online gender battles, Josie will outline some of feminisms strategic priorities for securing the longer-term future of the internet as a space for women and girls.

Our second session is a showing of a showing of WAN member, Dr Sue Sudbury’s fascinating filmed documentary Village Tales, which used participatory research methodologies with village women in India.
