Feminist Leadership and Mobilization on the Edge

Gender Equality
We support feminism and seek to give rise to new feminist thinking, to design new waves of participating in and changing society. We are concerned with capacity building for marginalized sexual communities in the digital age, to create an ecology that is safe and sustainable where sexuality is concerned. We hope to cultivate leadership that is sexually diverse, productive in multiple domains, and mobile in the digital age. We advocate and take action in a number of fields, to give birth to an island that is diverse when it comes to sexuality.

"Edge" is a perspective, from those identities who have become marginalized by patriarchy, in holding the power to interpret, to create new narratives.

"Female power" is an action plan, to allow feminism to give rise to new innovation, to design and reform means of participation, and change society.

In recent years, we have become especially concerned with the environment for gender/sexuality issues in the digital age, turning our attention to the Internet and fictional world.

We have carried out a number of plans regarding gender/sexuality, including:

● Gender/sexuality leaders: Training upstream social workers, teachers, and young people from sexually marginalized groups

● Innovative Productivity: Integrating feminism into innovative design, cultivating interdisciplinary cooperation, creating narratives, and training talent

● Digital Guerilla Warfare: Keeping pace with digital technologies, developing the capacity for feminist guerilla warfare

In the past, we also began a "digital sexual violence" and "female culture" local knowledge research, holding workshops/talks/exhibitions/markets. Our findings were published/used as educational materials/life goods, and etc., as part of interdisciplinary cooperation, as a means of advocacy and action.

Continuing our care for marginalized female power, the tasks we are currently focused on include Digital Sexual Violence and the Digital Meow program.
