The Women's Rights Campaigning: Info-Activism Toolkit is a guide for women's rights activists, advocates, NGOs and community-based organisations who want to use technology tools and practices in their campaigning.

Campaigning basics, practical strategies and tools, inspiring examples

The Guide is structured in four interconnected sections:

  • BASICS: From identifying your audience, to crafting your message, to keeping your digital security in check, this section covers the bases that need to be sorted at the outset of any effective campaign.

  • STRATEGIES: Practical tips and strategies to Grab Attention, Tell a Story, and Inspire Action with digital campaigning. Using digital storytelling, crowdmapping, and social media effectively.

  • TOOLS: If you are looking for an alternative to photoshop, an open source subtitling service, or a way to maintain your contacts, you will find some great resources here. There are over 40 tools divided into eight categories: audio, collaborative, image, mobile, outreach, print, security, and video.

  • EXAMPLES: Case studies of campaigns that have creatively raised awareness and inspired action. Included are cases from some of Tactical tech'searlier toolkits of Tactical Tech such as Mobiles-in-a-Box, Message-in-a-box, and 10 Tactics, as well as some new ones.

The Toolkit was developed as part of a project with New Delhi-based feminist human rights organisation CREA, along with seven partner organisations based in the Middle East, North Africa, South Asia and East Africa.
