As part of the Access Now community, you support the work of activists and emerging tech leaders around the world through events like Women Hack Day in Tunis, Tunisia. Technology can be transforming for people and communities across the globe, but not everyone gets equal access.
Your contribution will help us support people like Mouna Tayehi and her fellow female technologists in Tunisia.
Mouna, an exceptional student at l’Ecole Nationale des Sciences de l’Informatique (ENSI), won the software coding contest at Women Hack Day on November 28th. Access Now hosted the event together with our partners ArabWIC and Women Who Code, to celebrate women in technology in the region. We brought together nearly 50 women software developers, policymakers, and advocates to discuss emerging trends in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
Around the world, technology is enabling activists to organize, mobilize, and effect positive changes in their communities. All too often, though, access to technology is limited by lack of resources, repressive government policies, and inequality in education.
Through events like Women Hack Day, we can work together to inspire the next generation of tech thinkers, creators, activists, and leaders — with a seat at the table for everyone.
