When it comes to equal opportunities for women, things don’t seem to have improved too much in new media and technologies of late, and that holds true for the media-art genre as well. What initiatives are in place to remedy this situation and what can/should institutions contribute to a solution? The Feminist Climate Change symposium will face these issues.
