Designing & Imagining Feminist Interfaces

What does it mean to imagine an alternative, feminist voice interface? In this workshop, we worked together to imagine and prototype possible futures for voice technologies. Through a series of speculative design exercises, we discussed what voice technologies and software could look like if we designed them in line with the central commitments of feminism: participation, agency, embodiment, equity, empowerment, plurality, and justice. We explored how we can hack voice technologies by building our own prototypes, including coding custom Alexa skills.
