Women of the World Talk Back

This project started with an invitation to participate in the 1995 NGO Forum that was going to be staged in conjunction with the UN 4th World Conference on Women in China. I collaborated with another Georgia Tech faculty member to constitute a delegation of female students; as an officially recognized delegation we had lobbying privileges with members of the US Delegation to the UN Conference. The GT Delegation took a booth to the NGO Forum called “Women@Georgia Tech: Making History Now.” My colleague Mary Hocks and I expanded upon this opportunity to create a piece of feminist media activism using what was then state-of-the-art cd-rom authoring tools. Our aim was to provide evidence to our (dispersed) feminist colleagues that these new technologies could serve feminist political aims. The resulting interactive documentary called Women of the World Talk Back is part of the Designing Culture transmedia project.
