Where my data at - Building African feminist resistance to data practices
The discussion will highlight the recent project sponsored by internews on African feminist engagement with data practices. I will unpack why the project may be deemed feminist, the methodology, findings and finally the action points. The conversation will also be used to hear back from the African community on taking on feminist methodologies and engaging the feminist community.
