From the 24th to the 28th of August 2015, activists, community mobilizers, thought leaders, feminists, feminist allies, women, people non-conforming in their gender identities and sexual orientations will gather to reflect, to envision, to dream and to celebrate ten years of radical, African, lesbian feminist activism.
For these five days, a collective of radical African women will share, exchange, teach, listen and engage with each other, looking back at the last ten years of CAL work, and reflecting on the gains and lessons learned from the last CAL General Assembly held in Maputo in 2008.
It will be a space of gentleness, of growth, of sisterhood and of radical feminist births and re-births.
The theme for this year’s General Assembly is : Radical. African. Lesbian Feminist. [R]evolutionary! and the theme for the Feminist Leadership Institute is : Reigniting the Feminist Flame!
