African Feminist Initiative Conference

AFI's/Governing Intimacies' joint book talk with editors of Intimacy and Injury In the Wake of #MeToo in India and South Africa (Nicky Falkof, Srila Roy and Shilpa Phadke) and moderated by Zinhle ka’Nbuhlaluse

Through the lens of the #MeToo moment, the book tracks
histories of feminist organizing in both countries, while also
revealing how newer strategies extended or limited these struggles. Intimacy and injury is a timely mapping of a shifting political field around gender-based violence in the Global South. In
proposing comparative, interdisciplinary, ethnographically rich and analytically astute reflections on #MeToo, it provides new and potentially transformative directions to scholarly debates
this book builds transnational feminist knowledge and solidarity
in and across the Global South.
