New Release: African Women’s Journal Issue VIII- African Women in Power/Politics
HOT OFF THE PRESS! Through the support of Urgent Action Fund-Africa, our grantee The African Women’s Development and Communication Network (FEMNET) has released their latest African Women’s Journal dubbed African Women in Power/Politics, which explores both the individual and collective experiences of past, aspiring or current women in power and politics.
The articles speak to some of the persistent and structural as well as emerging obstacles and challenges women face as they wrestle with power, privilege and politics. Authors also present alternative strategies for ensuring visionary, transformative leadership. We stop and take stock and give room for personal journeys and reflections.
Whether we engage at local, national, regional or global levels, we continue to wrestle with power, make our voices heard and bring about lasting change which can be felt by the coming generations. We’ve heard a few of the stories and journeys here in this issue, but of course there are countless others whose stories have neither been told nor heard. May we continue to shape our own narratives and emerge with possibilities that respond to our realities.
