Brazilian-born Steffania Paola Costa di Albanez Costa is a visual artist and self-taught developer who is leveraging the power of technology and feminism to advance women’s rights and equality.
“Technology is dominated by men. And so the products we have, the platforms we have reflect their values. They are not women, they are not black women—they are people who don’t suffer the same sort of oppression we suffer as women.”
– Steffania Paola Costa di Albanez
