hey! do you have some good resources or blogs to follow to learn about non-western gender politics? i've been super super frustrated by how western-centric most north american discourse is and am looking to find some other stuff!
African Women’s Movements:transforming political landscapes by Joy Kwesiga, Isabel Casimiro, Alice Mungwa
Talking about Feminism in Africa by Elaine Salo and Amina Mama (Mama critiques ‘African Feminism: The Politics of Survival in Sub-Saharan Africa’ by Black American professor Gwendolyn Mikell and she put into words how I felt about the book when I read it)
Read up on Maman Jeanne Nacatche Banyere, she’s such an amazing Congolese woman, she’s head of the Federation of Protestant Women in Goma, Eastern Congo.
Les femmes sapeurs au Congo. I’m sure you’ll find English resources
RDC : une communauté LGBT dans l’ombre (translate this maybe?)
There are a lot of interviews with Congolese lgbt where they talk about gender, but they’re in Lingala. I said I’d translate some of them but I forgot lol sorry
