Uganda Feminist Forum 2019

In 2019, the Uganda Feminist Forum will take place from the 30th July to 1st August under the theme “Silencing Our Fears and Fearing Our Silence”.

The forum held annually, is an independent space that brings together women’s rights defenders, activists and Ugandan feminists to deliberate on key issues of concern to the movement. At UFF, we celebrate, harness and amplify our feminist journeys at national and regional level.

The UFF adopted the Charter of Feminist Principles for African Feminists, which was developed by the African Feminist Forum and provides the philosophical, aspirational and principle values that all who are members must uphold. This year’s forum is an opportunity to celebrate sisters’ courage, risking life and limb in speaking out against injustices, but also examining our complicity, inadvertent or not,in keeping quiet when our voices could have made a difference. It is a space to name and face our fears, and individually and collectively work to dismantle them.
