Keynote: Becky Faith

For our Fairness keynote, we invited Becky Faith, whose PhD research looked at how socially-excluded young women across the UK use mobile phones. For women who rely on their phones as their only source of internet and have trouble accessing charge points, problems like low battery life are exacerbated. “Having to charge and repair phones is a nuisance for most people”, she says, “but for women who are insecurely housed and on limited incomes these issues are more critical.”
