Happy Digital Sisterhood Wednesday!

Today, Digital Sisterhood Network (DSN) is using Digital Sisterhood Wednesday to support and stand in solidarity with Adria Richards, an amazing digital sister and technology evangelist who we love, respect, and learn from. We’ve known Adria since we met her at the Blogalicious Weekend Conference and interviewed her on Digital Sisterhood Radio in 2009. She is one of our Digital Diva Sheroes!

Last week, Adria used her voice and digital platform to speak up against inappropriate comments made by two men during the PyCon 2013 conference. Click on the links below to read related articles and blogs.

Like many of you, we are shocked and deeply troubled by the harassment and abuse  directed at her and her supporters. We support the actions she took and stand in solidarity with her and everyone who is on #TeamAdria. We hope this experience reminds each of us to practice civility and respect in our communications. May we also work to confront, transform, and eliminate sexism, racism, and other forms of oppression in technology and society.

  1. I read the article about what happen to Adria Richards and I was sad to see what had happen to her for speaking up about being disrespected. I know she will go on to better things and I am proud of her for standing up to men that have no respect for life and no shame. I wish her the best on the new path she will be taking she is a well educated women and that can not be taken from her.
