Call for papers: Womandla! Feminism and Social Movements in the Global South

Histories of social movements in the Global South remain dominated by the visions and achievements of male activists. Feminist scholars have responded by demonstrating the central role that women have played in social movements, especially the civil rights, women’s liberation, and anti-apartheid movements. Building on current historiographical trends toward transnational histories of women, gender, and feminist activism, this conference seeks to bring together historians and feminist scholars concerned with feminism and social movements in the Global South, but particularly across sub-Saharan Africa. It also aims to trace the global exchanges taking place between individual activists, their networks, and their ideas
