We should make #36c3 even more political, queer and feminist than #35c3 to drive those bro's away, that make it partly unsafe for people like me and minorities. I won't say make it less technical but get all kinds of people in that don't feel safe to attend yet. Flash news: feminist women can be hackers as well, we're not decoration or there for men's annoyance.
After the "Feminsist perspectives" talk a lot of people were honestly asking why women dont like male-dominated basements. I see how this could not be easy to understand and I think the next Congress should have a whole Feminist track.
With talks explaining why woman dont like basements. How the total lack of support / welcoming can be seen as hostile.
Someone would need to do the emotional work of explaining that, but its worth it.
I can volunteer to have a talk on Feminism in hackerspaces, or at least about the female hackers / engineers / technicians in culture and literature.
A lot of hackers worship the nerdy Dresden Codak, not seeing that the webcomic author outrightly fetishizes his female protagonist. We need to talk about womens agency in culture and in Spaces.
