#SundayRead by Eyala is back by popular demand (well, kinda: @Asmaaouu asked and I'd never dare say no to her).

As usual, this week I've read a ton of articles about women's rights and #feminism (especially in Africa) this week. Let me share 5 pieces that stood out for me.
In the seven years I lived in #Senegal I often wondered, where are the queer women? I figured they were being silenced, but this intriguing piece by @africasacountry suggests that queer women's silence may be a strategic choice.

The sisters @MAKEDAComms wrote about how social media is affecting the #feminist struggle in Africa. We stan a PR firm that delivers products and contributes to the movement's strategic thinking!

My favorite: @MsAfropolitan (whom I admire greatly) spoke with @calcourtesan about sexuality, eroticism and #Feminism and it was glorious. You just have to read it. Oh, and the pictures by @nad_ay are superb!

Many #feminist organizations do amazing work but don't take the time to document their processes, and that drives me nuts. So I love that @mamacash wrote this piece about their powerful #MyBodyIsMine campaign…

Because I'm a bookworm: @africaarguments' list of amazing books by African writers - many of them women - gave me life. Now I just need to find time to catch up with my ridiculous to-be-read pile.

That's it! Fam, let me know what you all are reading and I should add to my list!

(Also, many thanks to @ottizzle5 for letting me know about the @Pocket app!)
