This work aims to present new results of ongoing doctoral research on female technology communities, initially published in the Annals of XV Women in Information Technology 2021. New debates on inclusion, empowerment and education in these groups will be related to new theoretical fields such as data feminism and platformization besides a framework based on Edgar Morin’s Paradigm of Complexity to point out advances, risks and threats of this activism.
