Feminists movements around the world recognize the internet as an important site for the struggle for sexual and reproductive health rights, gender equality, empowerment, and liberation. This workshop will revisit the Feminist Principles of the Internet (FPI) that are divided into 5 broad clusters: Access, Movement, Economy, Expression, and Embodiment/Agency. After 3 global convenings aimed at imagining and building a feminist internet, the workshop aims to answer the following questions: where are we and where are we going in terms of the FPI?

This workshop is envisioned to last from 1.5 to 2 hours and will be divided into two: a) ground-clearing; and b) action planning. The "clearing the ground" part will be devoted to re-examining the FPI through the lens of feminist acts of resistance offline and online. After clearing the ground, the participants will break into small groups based on the FPI clusters and are expected to develop action plans that they can adopt or implement in their contexts.
