Tactical Tech and ARROW are excited to launch the 2016 ARROW for Change (AFC) Bulletin on Sexuality, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, and the Internet.

Guest-edited by Tactical Tech, the 2016 AFC bulletin includes contributions from 16 sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and tech activists, researchers, and writers, who explore the relationships and interdependencies influencing the promises of being online: voice, visibility, and power; and look at the possibilities offered by technologies to SRHR work, amidst challenges related to access, the corporatisation of the internet, collusion between governments and technology companies, censorship, violations of privacy, sexism, and violence, amongst others.

Collectively, these contributions posit a need for inter-movement building and collaborations between political struggles of digital sovereignty and freedom and those of bodily integrity and sexual and reproductive health and rights.

ABOUT ARROW FOR CHANGE (AFC) The AFC bulletin is a peer-reviewed serial publication produced by the Asian-Pacific Resource and Research Centre for Women (ARROW) that aims to contribute global-South-oriented, rights-based, and gender analyses of issues related to health, sexuality, and rights
