Feminist thought is a natural ally to the design of technologies because of its central commitments to issues such as agency, fulfillment, identity, equity, empowerment, and social justice. In this talk, Dr. Maryam discusses about some of her research which engages feminist perspectives and approaches towards designing technologies for/with underserved communities. In particular, she talks about designing for maternal and mental healthcare in Pakistan, designing for digital financial services targeted towards women and how women in the Global South have leveraged technologies to navigate around restrictions on work and mobility outside the home and claim financial independence by setting up thriving businesses.
