Now available: Our February – April 2024 print issue, An African Feminist Manifesto.

Our latest issue, An African Feminist Manifesto, considers the imperatives for Black African feminism(s) in our uniquely uncertain times, plus more.

This issue features essays that focus on the past, present and future of African feminism including an essay by Ololade Faniyi that examines the intersections of colonial legacies, gender oppression, and digital imperialism. Kéchi Nne Nomu (Republic newcomer of 2023) profiles the inventive collages of Norwegian-Nigerian artist, Frida Orupabo, who disrupts the historical representations of Black women’s bodies. Kai Mora (Republic writer of the year 2023) assesses the influence of Abrahamic religions on global Black consciousness and how women have interpreted, reimagined and reclaimed these narratives. As we celebrate 50 years of Buchi Emecheta’s Second-Class Citizen, Republic associate editor, Peace Onafuye, explains how the novel has inspired a generation of African writers with themes of immigrant life and the ills of patriarchal society. Oyindamola Depo-Oyedokun also reports on the japa phenomenon and the long history of Nigerian emigration.
