Contributors to this special collection tackle a wide range of valuable questions – Is technological feminism simply an extension of western feminist ideals, reflecting the global imbalance of technology influencers? If so, how can feminist technologies be decolonized and what values are missing? Is it possible to build a feminist technology in a contextual vacuum? If not, then how can we create localized context for products that are generalized by design? Can feminist technologies address online hate and misogyny? If so, how? Is feminism a primary pathway for the most inclusive of future technologies, or are there other intersectional identities that should supersede feminism?
