People at eyeo are innovators - they make futures. In this talk Catherine will invite you to try on some feminisms for your futures. She'll will talk about two projects: a book that charts a course for feminist data science and a hackathon to make the breast pump not suck. There is power in challenging power. There is power in design to empower. There is power in feminist imaginations and feminist futures.
