MWASI is an Afrofeminist collective created in 2014 by a group of African and Afrodescendant women. They are a non-mixed collective of Women and people assigned Women, Black and mixed race.
MWASI is part of liberation – revolutionary struggles. Their Afrofeminism is a political and collective response to the racist, hetero-patriarchal and capitalist system, inscribing itself in the history and legacies of Black women and feminists who have led struggles for emancipation and liberation, contributing in an important way to the construction of feminist thought whether in France, in sub-Saharan Africa, in the Caribbean or in the Afro diaspora. They are part of an Afrofeminism of combat, which aims at the radical change of society through collective struggle.
They want their full right to existence, liberation, happiness, and self-determination, which they will achieve through the abolition of negrophobia, heteropatriarchy, and capitalism. An Afrofeminism as a political practice, not an identity. It is therefore essential for them to strengthen Afrofeminist thought in the French context, starting from the experiences of Black women living in France to produce collective political strategies and analyses.
MWASI receives funding support from the Black Feminist Fund through our Sustain Fund.
