Abstract:This issue of Feminist Africa sets out to continue documenting and reflecting on feminist contributions to pan-Africanism, and the implications of pan-Africanism for feminism in Africa. Issue 19 indicated the variety of discourses and contributions of feminists in pan-Africanism. In this issue, contributors explore just some of the ways in which neoliberalism and neo-colonialism have distorted and obscured feminist articulations of the pan-Africanism dream. Contributions: Features in search of the state? Neoliberalism and the labour question for pan-African feminism (Lyn Ossome); Making a difference: embracing the challenge of women's substantive engagement in political leadership in Uganda (Josephine Ahikire, Peace Musiimenta and Amon Ashaba Mwiine); Between theory, activism and change: a case study of creating women's leadership for peace and security in the greater Horn of Africa (by Cheryl Hendricks); Ama Ata Aidoo's woman-centred pan-Africanism: a reading of selected works (Delia Kumavie); Archives and collective memories: searching for African women in the pan-African imaginary (Brenda Nyandiko Sanya and Anne Namatsi Lutomia); When exploitation is camouflaged as women empowerment: the case of Joyce Banda as presidential running mate and vice president in Malawi (Juliet Kamwendo and Gregory Kamwendo).
