Book: The Sex Lives of African Women

Join black feminist author Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah to talk about her book “The sex lives of African women,” in which she features the stories of more than 30 women (most using pseudonyms) giving us rare insights into how they navigate, negotiate and enjoy sex, sexuality and relationships across generations and borders.

Among them are monogamous, polyamorous, kinky, queer, transgender and celibate stories. This makes Darkoa’s book groundbreaking in showing the diverse sexualities of African women.

Nana will be joined by the African feminist writer and editor Rosebell Kagumire - who reviewed the book for openDemocracy. More speakers TBC.

Join us on 5 August 2021 at 5pm (UK time) for a free, live discussion as we explore this topic with an expert panel.
