Abstract

In this co-authored review-reflection, we discuss the African Feminisms 2019 conference, offering both a snapshot of the vital and emboldening African feminist work being conducted by researchers, cultural producers and creative practioners at all levels of their careers, as well as a sense of the emotional labour that this work entails. We note that the particular, shocking event that took place in South Africa just prior to the conference informed the papers, performances and ensuring discussions. We also note that the conference and many of its attendees advocated for a variety of approaches (and more than one feminism) when seeking to challenge power.
