#WhenWomenSpeak: (Re)Defining Kenyan Feminism

It’s not every day that a topic like Feminism is talked about. It is a rare occurrence for such a piece of publication to be done.

For your consumption, Brainstorm, a website dedicated to the “Intelligent; Kenyan” just produced it’s first quarterly and it is a must read! Check it out.

When Women Speak

Why Feminism?

Women are oppressed, harassed, raped and when you speak up people say it is no longer really a problem because they can now have jobs, vote, go to school and own property. When you try to learn about feminism, most of the work available to you is also not grounded in Kenyan realities.

This E-book hopes to change that by creating a basis for further conversation on feminism in Kenya/by Kenyans, as well as a space for discussion that is not reliant on the West. It will also help people understand that feminism is for everyone.
