I'm Alex, a CyberGrrrl activist!
Using the internet for feminist activism empowers women to use technology
while working toward feminist social change. It is CyberFeminism.
By exploring these 6 areas of CyberFeminist activism, you'll learn
about activism on the internet and how to use the internet in your
individual or group activism. This website is practical, fun, and
hopefully will make these activist resources more approachable. Be
empowered--be a CyberFeminist! I'll see you along the way! -Alex "

Matrix emerged from the Cyberswamp during a steamy Southern Australian
Summer, circa 1991. From 1991 - 1997 they presented several installations
and public art works in Australia and overseas, working with new media,
photography, sound and video. Along with Sadie Plant, they coined
the term 'cyberfeminism' in the early 1990's. The impetus of the group
was to investigate and decipher the narratives of domination and control
which surround high technological culture, and explore the construction
of social space, identity and sexuality in cyberspace. The project
which they pursued was one of debunking the masculinist myths which
might alienate women from technological devices and their cultural
products. They believe that women who hijack the tools of domination
and control introduce a rupture into a highly systematised culture
by infecting the machines with radical thought, diverting them from
their inherent purpose of linear topdown mastery.” http://lx.sysx.org/vnsmatrix.html
