Sara Longwe is one of the exciting feminist activists, thinkers and rebellious women of the continent; she was the chair of the African Women’s Development and Communications Network, and the backbone of several legally-oriented challenges to the state, which resulted in critical shifts to women’s status in Zambia and elsewhere. She will speak about some of her personal experiences of tackling legal activism. Copies of Feminist Africa 15 (2011), in which she has a feature piece will be available. See Flyer.
