Liebe/r FoME Kolleg/Innen,

wie kurz beim BMZ erwähnt haben wir die Ehre die Aktivistin und
Bloggerin Rosebell Kagumire bei uns als Gast morgen für eine
#FeministCafe zu haben. Wir laden Sie bei unsere HQ in
Berlin-Charlottenburg hierzu herzlichst ein!

beste Grüße,


Our 2nd Feminist café is on! We will be hosting Rosebell Kagumire from
Uganda, a journalist, and editor for African Feminism
Rosebell will discuss pan-African feminist mobilization in the Internet
age and how access to the Internet has connected young Africans in new
ways that were previously not possible. New and old forms of expression
are converging led by young African women building on the resistance
work of many African women to push and expand rights. 

Join us to learn more about Rosebell’s experiences on how online spaces
and digital technologies have impacted the African feminist’s movement
building and strengthened their resistance against surveillance and
censorship in the region.
