Indian Feminist - Dream Opportunity in Delhi || Feminist Approach to Technology

About FAT: Feminist Approach to Technology (FAT) is a nonprofit organization committed to empowering women through technology. We believe that women can move at par with men in making and using technology and that women can truly feel empowered only when the perceived technological divide has been bridged.

Our Mission
The mission of FAT is to empower women by enhancing women’s awareness, interest and participation in technology. We work towards this by breaking societal stereotypes and attitudes, encouraging and enabling women to feel capable and comfortable in working with technology, and collaborating with other women’s organizations to enhance their work by using technology.

Our work so far
Though FAT was started in 2008, its first formal programme was launched in 2010 in New Delhi. Over the last five years, FAT’s work has evolved with its own understanding of various intersections between women’s rights and science and technology. At present, FAT’s work can be categorized in three distinct themes: 
a) Women using technology for making their voices heard
b) Women making technology within STEM fields
c) Women’s decision making in and around technology

Over the last five years, FAT’s work under the theme one, i.e., women using technology for making their voices heard, has seen a prominent growth and success in various ways.
