AMwA seeks the creativity of African feminists in disseminating key issues from the Oral Herstories. We encourage creativity in their diversity from audio, visual, painting, and other artistry displays that can portray the lived experiences of the 16 women interviewed in the Oral Herstories.

Akina Mama wa Afrika (AMwA) is a feminist-Pan-African leadership development organization that was founded in 1985 by a group of visionary African women in the United Kingdom but later relocated to Africa with headquarters in Kampala, Uganda.
Their work is rooted in feminist principles and beliefs guided by the Charter of Feminist Principles for African Feminists which defines their leadership development programme and movement-building activities.

AMwA provides strategic direction in key Pan-African networks including NGO CSW Africa, Solidarity for African Women’s Rights and the Gender Is My Agenda Campaign. AMwA also has consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. AMwA envisions a world in which African women are politically, economically, and socially autonomous and are champions of change in their lives and society. AMwA’s mission is to strengthen the individual and collective leadership of African women, forming strategic partnerships, to tackle patriarchy and attain gender equality and women’s empowerment for a just and secure Africa.
