Making of a Feminist

Kate Steenhauer and Maria Sappho

The making of a feminist is inspired by the complex entanglement of human and computer ‘intelligence’ in a time of crisis, in collaboration with Improviser Maria Sappho and Prof. Dubravka Pokrajac based at the University of Aberdeen.

’Invisible Women’ a book by Caroline Criado Perez exposes data bias in a world designed for men. From government policy and medical research, to technology, workplaces, and the media, it reveals how systematically half of the population is ignored, often with disastrous consequences.

These data biases are only heightened in times of conflict, natural disasters, and pandemics, when lives of women are disproportionality affected by higher risk of infection, sexual abuse, and domestic violence.
