All-women and Feminist Initiatives in Art,Science&Tech

This is a mapping and partial list of all-women initiatives that have been established at the intersection of arts and technology since the middle 1980s internationally. Majority of them are self-organize: creative networks, collectives, exhibitions, series, festivals, simposiums, platforms, projects, organizations, spaces, feminist hackerspaces, etc. Due to awareness by institutions on the underrepresentation of women in new media arts and creative industries, there is a partial listing within the map of initiatives organized within an institutional framework.

The purpose of this work is to provide open academic resources on women’s studies, feminist art, women in new media arts, all-women spaces, feminist spaces, women’s activism, women and ICT, translocal and transnational women’s networks and general culture.
