TakeBackTheTech! is a collaborative campaign to reclaim information and communication technology (ICT) to end violence against women. The campaign calls on all ICT users – especially women and girls – to take control of technology and strategically use any ICT platform at hand (mobile phones, instant messengers, blogs, websites, digital cameras, email, podcasts and more) for activism against gender-based violence. Take Back the Tech! plans several campaigns throughout the year, with the biggest being 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence (November 25 – December 10 each year).
Individuals are invited to take up an action on their own, in collaboration with friends or campaign with an organisation, among other ways of participation.
