Webinar hosted by VOICE - Feminist Movement Building in West Africa

World Pulse
Posted January 21, 2021
Expired on January 27, 2021

Feminist movement-building promotes feminist perspectives as the driving force of systemic change, with emphasis on women-led activism across issues and environments. Feminist movement-building is achieved by the mobilization and galvanization of women and girls into networks, organizations, and movements.

Through their very first panel discussion on the topic, VOICE is excited to explore feminist movement building that has taken place in West and Central Africa by speaking to women who have been at the forefront of these successful, global, women-led movements. This panel discussion ultimately aims to understand how we can continue to push for feminist solutions, by means of creating, growing, and supporting women-led movements, to eradicate the multiple forms of violence women and girls face.

The Panelists:

Sally Mboumien (World Pulse amazing ambassador, leader, and member!) is a Cameroonian peacebuilder and feminist activist, who has been leading a network of women calling for peace and ceasefire in the Cameroonian Anglophone Crisis. She is the executive director of Common Action for Gender Development (COMAGEND), and also advocates for sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for women and girls.

Aisha Yesufu is a Nigerian socio-political activist, and co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls Movement, an advocacy group that brought attention to the abduction of over 200 girls from a secondary school in Chibok, Nigeria in 2014. She is also known for being a leading voice and icon of the 2020 #EndSARS movement and protests in Nigeria.
