Rosalía trabajó 18 meses componiendo, produciendo y arreglando El mal querer de forma independiente y solo después de la repercusión de Malamente y Pienso en tú mirá (ambos videoclips financiados por ella) la multinacional discográfica Sony le ofreció un contrato.

Nadie ha atacado a Antonio Banderas, Óscar Jaenada o Jordi Mollà por trabajar en Estados Unidos como sí se ha ridiculizado a Penélope Cruz, Elsa Pataki o Paz Vega por hacer exactamente lo mismo. De Fernando Rey se aplaude que saliese en French Connection, de Sara Montiel se recuerda cómo le freía huevos con ajo a Marlon Brando.

La clase social de los hermanos Muñoz de Estopa fue uno de los baluartes de su éxito y no se les calificó, como ocurre con Rosalía, de “choni poligonera” o “cani de extrarradio”.

…the work my group does focuses on social justice and on the inclusion of marginalized individuals and points of view. It’s hard to do that work with a straight face in a place that violated its own values so clearly in working with Epstein and in disguising that relationship.

For me, the deep involvement of Epstein in the life of the Media Lab is something that makes my work impossible to carry forward there.

My first priority is taking care of my students and staff, who shouldn’t have to suffer because Joi made a bad decision and I decided I couldn’t live with it. My second priority is to help anyone at the Media Lab who wants to turn this terrible situation into a chance to make the Lab a better place. That includes Joi, if he’s able to do the work necessary to transform the Media Lab into a place that’s more consistent with its stated values.

I’m aware of the privilege that it’s been to work at a place filled with as much creativity and brilliance as the Media Lab. But I’m also aware that privilege can be blinding, and can cause people to ignore situations that should be simple matters of right and wrong.

“Sueño con un mundo en el que cada uno tenga sus datos encriptados antes de subirlos a la red. Ahora mismo, la situación es que todo el mundo da sus datos sin recibir nada a cambio. Y los damos para todo. Le preguntamos a Siri por la recomendación de un restaurante para comer, para cualquier cosa. Creo que debería haber, y Microsoft lo ha planteado en ocasiones, un mercado de datos que la gente pudiera decidir si quiere dar sus datos y a cambio pudiera recibir un tipo de compensación”, explica. “Ahora en la inteligencia artificial se utilizan muchos algoritmos con múltiples propósitos, como el reconocimiento de caras, recomendaciones de libros, imágenes médicas y tratamientos… Pero hay un problema de privacidad porque si subes todos tus datos biológicos a la nube no sabes quién y cómo puede utilizarlos”

Fue fundadora de Women in Numbers, un exitoso colectivo para trabajar en red que se ha extendido a otros campos como el de las biomatemáticas, Lauter sostiene que la sociedad debería apoyar más a las mujeres.

In this paper, we begin to outline how feminist theory may be productively applied to information visualization research and practice. Other technology and design-oriented fields such as Science and Technology Studies, Human-Computer Interaction, Digital Humanities, and Geography/GIS have begun to incorporate feminist principles into their research. Feminism is not (just) about women,
but rather draws our attention to questions of epistemology – who is included in dominant ways of producing and communicating
knowledge and whose perspectives are marginalized. We describe potential applications of feminist theory to influence the information
design process as well as to shape the outputs from that process.

In this paper, we have outlined six principles for feminist data visualization: Rethink Binaries, Embrace Pluralism, Examine Power and Aspire to Empowerment, Consider Context, Legitimize Embodiment and Affect and Make Labor Visible. These are preliminary and offered for the purposes of beginning a dialogue about how the digital humanities and information visualization communities can productively exchange theories, concepts, and methods. Applying humanistic theories to design processes and artifacts may be new territory for many humanists, just as grappling with questions of subjectivity, power, and oppression may be new territory for many visualization researchers. As data visualization becomes a mainstream technique for making meaning and creating stories about the world, questions of inclusion, authorship,framing, reception, and social impact will become increasingly important. In this regard, the humanities and specifically feminist theory have much to offer.

The essay reflected on the experiments of the feminist movement in resisting the idea of leaders and even discarding any structure or division of labor. However, as Hilary Wainwright wrote in Z Magazine, Freeman described how «this apparent lack of structure too often disguised an informal, unacknowledged and unaccountable leadership that was all the more pernicious because its very existence was denied.» As a solution, Freeman suggests formalizing the existing hierarchies in the group and subjecting them to democratic control.

D’Ignazio says this issue is compounded by the fact that women and people of color are underrepresented in data science and technical fields in general, a trend that is worsening. She also highlights skewed quantity and quality of data that is collected about various groups of people. For instance, there are very detailed datasets on gross domestic product and prostate function, but very poor datasets on hate crimes and the composition breast milk.

según Walter Gropius las mujeres no estaban capacitadas física y genéticamente para determinadas artes ya que pensaban en dos dimensiones, frente a sus compañeros masculinos, que sí podían hacerlo en tres.

Lo que resultaba más apasionante de la Bauhaus era que no había ningún sistema de enseñanza aún establecido. Y sentías como si dependiese solo de ti. Debías encontrar de algún modo tu manera de trabajar. Esa libertad es, probablemente, algo esencial que todo estudiante debería experimentar
