ABOUT

House of African Feminisms

The House of African Feminisms (HoAF) is a platform for feminist discourse, resource and enlightenment. The project aims at highlighting the works of various African feminist scholars, artists and thinkers around the world as well as providing a resource on African feminisms.  It is anchored on a strong concept/idea of cultural exchange, networking and inclusivity. 

HoAF identifies that African feminisms have not received as much widespread coverage as other forms of feminism despite the fact that it has played an integral part in various spheres on the continent to push for change politically, socially, culturally and environmentally. The platform is aimed at providing a space for different feminist actors in their respective fields as well as to support them to build important linkages among themselves as well as with the necessary institutions. It also aims at providing information for the everyday person who is curious about African feminisms and wants to learn more. The project defines feminism not only as a conscious intellectual and activist movement, but as the daily lived experience of women* (including queer/trans*) even those who don’t refer to themselves as “feminist”. 

The content provided on the platform includes podcasts, articles, music and art.  There will also be access to digital/online events as well as links to other feminist resources (webpages and blogs) and books. These works will cover a wide variety of subjects including women's* rights, feminist traditions, corporeality, health and reproductive politics.



What it Is 

An African feminist platform for cultural exchange and learning. A reserve for African feminist theories and an educational and social resources of feminist subject matter. 

What we provide

Content on various topics including women's* rights, feminist traditions, corporeality, health and reproductive politics in different formats such as podcasts, articles, art pieces and music. 

What we believe

That all feminists should have a voice and that feminism is not only a conscious intellectual and activist movement, but a daily lived experience for women* even those who don’t refer to themselves as “feminist”. That we need to tell the story of the everyday life of African women* of all generations.

Who is it for? 

Feminist scholars, thinkers, the everyday African woman* and you.
