What would a decolonized internet look like in the African continent? How do African feminists reimagine and want to rethink what the web feels, sounds, and reads like?
In this conversation with Kerubo and Youlendree, Memory Kachambwa, executive director at the African Women’s Development and Communication Network (FEMNET), reflects on the erasure of African women’s perspectives and contributions, what decolonization means, and the need to center African stories and imaginations in the digital space.
As Memory points out, the internet as we know it is far from neutral.
She brings some of her learnings and musings from the sessions held at Decolonizing the Internet, East Africa, and what the convening meant for her.
