Launch: Jensiat — A graphic novel on digital and sexual security in Iran

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The subject of Internet security often sounds complicated and scary to regular users to the extent that they tend to ignore everything around the subject. As a prelude, the session starts with a short overview of the most effective methods of educating internet users on the subject of internet security.
We present our recent project “Jensiat” (“جنسیت”) which is about security: sexual and digital security! The joint creative project aims to educate Iranian audience on cyber security through visual storytelling. Jensiat is a fictionalized animated graphic novel of the life of a young female entrepreneur inside Iran. 
The story follows protagonist Leila, a 34-year-old woman who has returned to Iran after working and studying in France for more than a decade. Her return to Iran brings her face to face with issues regarding the various relations between men and women, and the struggles of making it big in Iran’s emerging tech start-up scene. With the help of her friends, including long-time love interest and Iranian-American digital rights activist Jamshid, Leila navigates her projects and ambitions through various trials and tribulations related to gender, security and state controls.
