FemTechNet is an activated network of hundreds of scholars, students, and artists who work on, with, and at the borders of technology, science, and feminism in a variety of fields including Science and Technology Studies (STS), Media and Visual Studies, Art, Women’s, Queer, and Ethnic Studies. Launched in 2012, the network has developed and experimented with collaborative processes to address the educational needs of students interested in feminist STS. One of the current FemTechNet projects is the creation of an alternative to MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) called a DOCC: Distributed Open Collaborative Course. Another project is the Critical Race and Ethnic Studies Workbook.
METRAC has been in operation since 1984. Our mission is to end gender-based violence across communities through education, research and policy. We work with individuals, communities, and institutions to change ideas, actions, and policies toward ending gender-based violence. Our work supports all women and youth; and includes those affected by intimate partner violence, systemic violence and lack of access to supports. Respect in Action (Respect) is METRAC’s youth peer violence prevention program through which youth learning communities increase knowledge of the dynamics of gendered violence and interconnecting forms of abuse. Weekly after-school groups are held in Toronto schools for the duration of 1-2 years, or for shorter periods at local community spaces. Youth learn about healthy relationships, and are mentored and trained to become leaders for social change and violence prevention.

The Fembot community is committed to collaboration, collegiality, helping our members achieve the highest standards of research, and creating content that is as engaging as it is rigorous. Decades of feminist intellectual work have demonstrated the need for continued debate within the field. Feminist media research requires sustained and often difficult conversations.
