From the Margins to the Centre: Discourses on the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Women in Uganda

‘From the Margins to the Centre: Discourses on the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Women in Uganda’,  is an outcome of an effort by AMwA and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) Uganda to document the different facets of the pandemic and its numerous impacts on different areas of life for women.

It is a collection of essays, attempting to render visible the voices and experiences of women in all their diversities, and to collate and amplify demands for a pandemic response and recovery that is time-bound, inclusive and gender-conscious.

The publication borrows from bell hooks’ seminal critique of mainstream feminism’s centering of white privileged women’s issues at the expense of non-white women. With this publication, we hope to shift women’s views and experiences from the margins to the centre.
