New solidarities have emerged and the issues they seek to addressed have also changed and are daughters of their time. This panel invites communications on the connections and disruptions of African feminisms. This panel invites academic papers or art work (movies,spoken words, poetry, posters, etc.) relating to: - gender justice, - feminist political economy and social reproduction, - sexuality, - young feminists' activism, - women's rights, - feminist creative arts, - LGBTQ rights, - feminist mothering, - sisterhood, - feminist scholarship and/in African studies.
