Data Feminism Network

Harnessing Data Feminism for an Equitable Future for All

About DFN

Data Feminism Network (DFN) is a project founded by Ali Dunn in 2020 with support from a talented team of diverse women that include Simran Panatch, Jade Greer, Elettra Baldi and Mycala Gill.  

In 2023, DFN was officially acquired by Data-Pop Alliance under our Data Feminism Program, to carry on the mission of advancing feminist principles in data science and technology through community-based knowledge sharing. The concept and principles of Data Feminism were coined by Catherine D’Ignazio and Laura F. Klein in their homonymous book, which serves as inspiration to both DFN and the Data Feminism Program.

DFN is currently funded by the Patrick J McGovern Foundation.
