Bed in the women’s shelter at the Polyclinic of Hope in Kigali, Rwanda :: I started this Instagram account on a trip from Pakistan to Eastern Congo, realising that my work was taking me through histories that were important to remember but equally not having time to take stock beyond the formal reporting required by my job. So basic snap-capture phone photography was a way of capturing my memories of activist travel. Given that I work on violation and violence it has also been ‘medicine’ to document beauty and resistance….. ~ Jessica #publicprivatelives #afrifem #survival #witness #nomadology #wansolwata #Rwanda #violence #healing

In their politics and practices women’s and feminist movements create various forms of counter-culture and alternative power relations. Set in the context of other social movements, this implies that integrating gender perspectives is not just about ‘including’ women or ‘thinking about’ men and gender minorities but, rather, considering what a gendered politics provides in terms of alternative ways of being, seeing and doing that in themselves serve to transform patriarchal power relations.
