Agenda In a time of shiny interfaces behind which things happen as if by magic – taxis arrive, groceries get delivered, love is found – there are acts of disappearance as well: women disappear from within the system they inhabit. This talk will uncover some of these magic tricks. In the context of Tactical Tech’s work on digital security and privacy, the talk will show how women’s experiences of online harm, violence and discrimination are made to disappear, and the efforts we’re making to help them reappear.
