Two weeks ago, @EyalaBlog & @Oxfam's #SayEnough celebrated #AfricanWomensDay by amplifying the voices of African #feminist who #FlipTheScript on harmful social norms. I wrote about what I learned from these conversations 👇🏾
Summarizing the brilliance of #Afrifem powerhouses @nas009 @rachaelmwiks @SouadDouibi @BintouMariamT @drtlaleng @Emmaonekekou @muthonie & Cleo Kambugu is no easy feat! I'm glad I recorded all #FlipTheScript conversations, especially this amazing webinar:
#FlipTheScript was a perfect celebration of Eyala's 2nd birthday, too! The year ahead will bring many changes, but Eyala's #feminist vision remains the same: proudly African, intentionally inclusive, bravely personal, boldly political, and rooted in kindness, love, & sisterhood.

And we’re live! Welcome to this #FlipTheScript Q&A with one of my #Afrifem fav @nas009, whose blog @adventuresfrom has helped my and many other African womxn embrace their sexualities. Image
#FlipTheScript is an @EyalaBlog x @Oxfam #SayEnough collab that’s all about celebrating the African womxn and #Afrifem who disrupt the narratives and social norms that perpetuate gender-based violence ahead of #AfricanWomensDay Image
And @nas009 does exactly that. Hi sis, are you here and ready to go?

Hello Friends! Somehow Sunday has come again to close one of these feel-long-but-go-in-a-flash weeks 2020 has specialized in. So here I am with my list of #recommendedreads about #Africa #WomensRights & #Feminism, and an exciting announcement!
#EyalaReads #SundayReads
If you know (or just follow) me you will know that #feminist sisterhood is the core of what I am about. So of course @TheJamaJack's ode to the sisters who nurture her is at the top of this reading list. Thank you sis for sharing! #EyalaReads
@TheJamaJack piece reminded me of what Dr. Celeste Henery wrote in @HistoryWO about radical friendships: "a type of friendship, driven by an uncertain but no less wondrous attempt to become more of ourselves. I would call it sacred." On point. #EyalaReads
