Launch of Feminist Labour Collectives Initiative

Feminist Labour Collectives website has just been launched -check it out! FemLab.Co

It is a project funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) that builds on an understanding of communicative ecologies of women in specific sites of informal labour to explore how digital platforms can be leveraged by them to share grievances and communicate directly to the top of the global supply chain, allowing their voices to contribute to the governance of the future of work and ethical/responsible design. Usha Raman and I received funding as Principal Investigators for this initiative and have a got together a wonderful and diverse team across four countries: India, Bangladesh, Netherlands and Germany that will work on the fieldwork, digital storytelling and stakeholder policy analysis in the upcoming years.

Stay tuned.
