Eyala is a platform by, for and about African feminists. Eyala is a bilingual (French-English) platform that centres and amplifies the voices and lived experiences of African girls, women and LBTQI people who dare disrupt patriarchal norms across the continent and in diaspora communities. Eyala supports African feminists in using their voices as a rallying cry against patriarchal oppression. They create spaces where African feminists can connect in ways that are political and intimate and seek to intentionally foster sisterhood as a core principle for feminist movement-building.
