The internet is about cats, sex, and power. While cats and sex are usually very visible, power isn't.  In this session, we'll be doing a deep-dive into regulation in India on obscenity and the digital landscape in Nepal and Sri Lanka, where sexuality has become an expression, often met with censorship and violence. We'll come together to explore the many intersections of resistance and freedom on sex, rights and the internet in South Asia.
