tendernet is a collective of female-identifying artists, writers, engineers, researchers, designers, educators, and activists whose work explores speculative design, networked devices, surveillance, and privacy through an intersectional feminist framework.

Most recently, the collective has led workshops, produced zines, given talks, and written on topics as diverse as: feminist interfaces and critical design, IoT and privacy, alternatives to Alexa voice assistants, the surveillance of female bodies, and self-tracking & disciplinary power.
