African women shaping democracy

African women have organised to challenge structural exclusion in their societies for decades. As a majority demographic, including their voices and experiences are key to the development of robust democratic institutions. As the world celebrates Women’s History Month, at Luminate, we are proud to highlight some of the exemplary women in leadership among our partner organizations in Africa. Read their reflections on the powerful movements that African women led, and the role they are playing to build inclusive democracies. Join them, support them, cite them, and amplify them!
