Decolonizing the Internet East Africa

In September 2022, the African Women's Development and Communication Network (FEMNET) and Whose Knowledge?, convened nearly 40 feminists working in tech from across the East-African region in Lusaka, Zambia, to hold conversations and reflections on decolonizing the internet. In this report we share experiences and collective strategies from this gathering.
