Hi Friend,

African feminist organizing is a force to reckon with. Despite the lack of mainstream media attention, African feminist activists and creatives across the continent are re-imagining systems and navigating one of the most difficult moments in history with flexibility, innovation and nerve.

Our newsletter this week, is a Link Love edition that gives you an inspirational glimpse into the heart of the movement, music, and more from Africa.

As we continue to create & curate new content, we would love to see what our audience enjoys most and where we can get better. Please take a few moments to respond to a survey at the end of the newsletter. Alternatively, you can click here to directly go to the survey page.

With Love,

All of us at FRIDA
