The first ever African Leadership Sex Workers Academy was carried out. The event took place in Nairobi, having participants from Malawi, South Africa and Zimbabwe. The event was focused on shedding light around the intersectionality of feminism, violence and sex work. The issues that divided early suffragettes still plague women today. For all the progress that has been made, women's rights activists have also taken steps backwards. Feminism, as a movement, has not done a good job at being inclusive of minorities. The purpose of intersectional feminism is to recognise how different aspects of a person’s identity might interact to change the way they experience the world – and the barriers they might face as a result.
