Ethox Seminar - Feminist-Ethical Perspectives on Digital (Health) Technologies

Abstract: Fitness coaches, symptom checkers, sleep assistants, period trackers: the digital assistants help us in our everyday lives and promise to enhance our health and autonomy. At the same time, discrimination and sexism can often be found in the applications. Feminist apps want to change that, but how can digital developments, such as apps, be understood as feminist? What are the criteria for a feminist-ethical analysis and what would be the benefits of such a perspective?
