Feminist movement-building

From AWID, I have learnt on how to strengthen women's organisations and to bring solidality on womens movement in our regions and our countries and documentation is important. To make sure that we are  achieving the MDG3 is when we as women we realise our rights, we exercise them and they are fullfied. It's we women who can make things to change by dismantling patriachal systems which are oppressing women.

Commonwealth Munyonyo, Kampala was this year graced with the presence of at least 150 African women feminists who got together to continue with the feminist revolution. Throughout the 4 days women from at least 29 African countries planned, spoke, sang, danced and shared stories and thoughts from across Africa. The purpose of the AFF this year was to assess progress made on the commitments made at the AFF in 2006. It was also to mobilize efforts at national levels and develop best methodologies to implement the Charter of feminist principles of African feminists.
 I'm sharing this space with my friend and sister activist, Sindi Blose, from Treatment Action Campaign in South Africa. She won't mention the fact that she did an extraordinary job of rocking the Global Village this afternoon with the rest of our women crossing the line. The songs and dancing drew dozens of men and women to our cramped site with huge enthusiasm and nothing but joy and appreciation for the power of their very personal stories of struggle.

Organizing in Zimbabwe has been challenging, even dangerous, for some years. As the country’s economic crisis has deepened – with measurable inflation reaching 79,600,000,000% monthly and 98% daily in November 2008 – activists have had to pit themselves against repressive laws and actions such as Operation Murambatsvina, a wave of brutal urban clearance, beginning in 2005 and repeated since, that has affected an estimated 2.4 million Zimbabweans.
