Florence Khaxas “Our autonomous spaces as young feminists have always been met with hostility and violence from the institutions that uphol patriarchy, however, we have always found creative ways to organize ourselves and break the isolation and alienation through collaborative action.” Vimbainashe Makanza “Feminist activism recognises that the intrinsic nature of suffering that different groups go through cannot always be captured outside the scope of experience, that empathy consideration of contexts and diversity and love are a priority.” Munukayumbwa Mwiya “Tell your story because you have a responsibility to yourself, tell your story because no one can tell your story better than you can, how you choose to that is your business”
