Jennifer Radloff

Activista sudafricana que desde 1994 está involucrada a nivel local, regional y mundial en la problemática del derecho de las mujeres a comunicarse y acceder a información relevante y accesible. Jennifer trabaja en el área de las TIC para el cambio social, el empoderamiento de las mujeres y las soluciones creativas para involucrar a la sociedad civil a fin de asegurar que la tecnología se utiliza para combatir las desigualdades. Jennifer cree que mediante el uso de metodologías tales como la narración digital y la Metodología de Evaluación de Género podemos crear, monitorear y mejorar el acceso y el uso de las mujeres de tecnologías para el cambio de una manera significativa. Y, con suerte, influir en las políticas que están en contra de una internet libre y abierta.
