Stories of Girls’ Resistance
Anonymous, West Africa


“I haven’t achieved my goals yet. But I’ve cleaned up the path, allowing my peers, people like me, to speak up and thump the table to say no. To claim their own space and remind people of their existence and of their needs. To talk about their experience. I can say I have contributed to that a bit. My vision is to see all those paths unite in order to take action, not at the level of the whole country but in the subregion. I want to see organizations of queer women in francophone Western Africa unite, in a clear political vision.”
