In September 2022, the African Women's Development and Communication Network (FEMNET) and Whose Knowledge?, convened nearly 40 feminists working in tech from across the East-African region in Lusaka, Zambia, to hold conversations and reflections on decolonizing the internet. In this report we share experiences and collective strategies from this gathering.
We are a global campaign to center the knowledge of marginalized communities (the majority of the world) on the internet.
This blog post is part one of our "#16DaysOfActivism: Reproductive injustice is violence against women in digital and physical worlds" series.
In this re-shared blog post from African Feminism, our #VisibleWikiWomen coordinator, Sunshine Fionah Komusana, reflects on the activism of African feminists in online spaces. African feminist activism in digital rights, knowledge justice and language advocacy is thriving despite the colonial legacies, patriarchal African leaders and poor tech infrastructure.
