March 7th: Hack-a-Thon

Hack-a-Thon 03

At our first Fembot Hack-a-thon, we created the Fembot Bot: an auto-tweeting bot designed to auto-reply to sexist and racist hashtags. Sadly, Twitter shut down the Fembot Bot too quickly. Join us in their memory on Saturday, March 7th, when we will collaborate with coders, software designers, and others at the Annenberg School to build some awe-inspiring feminist tools and interventions.

RSVP! Space is limited.

 UPDATE: This event is now sold out! (Register on our EventBrite page, here.)
