the feminist café is all about providing an intersectional feminist space, welcoming anyone who supports the full achievement of women's and girls' human rights on a global level.
Open Culture Feminist Café was initiated during open:fora street meet in May 2019 and has since then developed into a recurring format striving to uplift the stories of women and girls from around the world by inviting different speakers who are redefining the words of feminism and feminist activism through their field of work to discuss a diverse set of topics in an informal communicational setting. It is a platform for anyone interested in sharing ideas about gender equality and learning about different causes and projects aimed towards collective awareness and action.
Most importantly, the feminist café is all about providing an intersectional feminist space, welcoming anyone who supports the full achievement of women's and girls' human rights on a global level.
As we would like to create a participation-based platform, we welcome your suggestions and new ideas for future thematic editions of our feminist café. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

Reclaiming self-Expression- African Feminism in Digital Spaces
This short video is an excerpt from the 2nd feminist café event, a conversation with Rosebell Kagumire, a pan-African feminist writer and socio-political analyst moderated by Egyptian artist and scholar Heba Y. Amin on the topic of pan-African feminist mobilization in the Internet age. They discuss how access to the Internet has connected young African women in new ways, enabling them to build further on previous resistance work of many African women to dismantle patriarchy and organise pushback, whether it concerns local political authorities, religious beliefs or foreign narratives.
