About the African Feminists: Talking the Walk programme
The African Feminists: Talking the Walk is a programme of the African Gender Institute that started in August 2011. This programme attempts to match people (African Feminists) to their ideas and the debates they engage with in doing their work. In essence the programme tries to respond to a question that is often asked by people; ‘What do African feminists look and sound like?’ In this programme the AGI collaborates with various individuals, organisations and university departments to host a diverse range of events from seminar presentations, book launches, documentary screenings and panel discussions.
