The AGI's Programmes all seek to contribute to knowledge creation fundamental to understanding the intersectional politics of gender within African contexts. Each programme is driven through research projects, partnership building and direct engagement with questions of theory and strategy.
Feminist Africa is a continental gender studies journal produced by the community of feminist scholars. It provides a platform for intellectual and activist research, dialogue and strategy. Feminist Africa attends to the complex and diverse dynamics of creativity and resistance that have emerged in postcolonial Africa, and the manner in which these are shaped by the shifting global geopolitical configurations of power.
The Young Women’s Leadership Project on Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights (SRHR) is an action research project which works with university women in five different Southern African countries to educate them for improved sexual and reproductive health rights, while building feminist leadership skills in young women. The young women who participate in the project are educated in gender, sexuality studies and SRHR in order to build advocacy skills around gender and SRHR on their respective campuses in and in their countries.
