Über die Veranstaltung

Language: English

speaker: Asjad, Afaf and Samah from Sudan Uprising


The fact that German media are reporting on the current fighting in Sudan is mainly due to the fact that the German government is trying to evacuate German citizens. 

What exactly is going on there politically, which side represents which agenda and why who resorts to which means, remains unspoken in most reports. How the political reality is pegged by colonial continuities is even more omitted. And women* are not actors in this narrative, but fugitives if at all. 

We talk to Asjad, Afaf and Samah from Sudan Uprising and contrast the sketchy and superficial daily news with the perspectives of women* from Sudan who - not only since these struggles broke out - stand up for freedom, peace and self-determination.

Samah Khalaf Allah is a prominent Sudanese human rights advocate and feminist.

She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Community Health Management from Ahfad University for Women 2013- Omdurman, Sudan, and a Master’s degree in Gender, Development, and Peace from the Regional Institute of Gender, Diversity Peace and Rights 2020- Omdurman, Sudan, currently, she’s part of the Junior Research Group at Africa multiple Cluster of Excellence as a Doctoral Researcher working on Political Transformation and Sexualities. her Ph.D. thesis title is “Towards a History of Queer and Feminists “Movements” in Sudan”. Samah worked for several civil society organizations that focused on gender justice, SRHR issues, and the inclusion of minority groups. She participated actively in the Sudanese revolution of 2018-2019, taking part in demonstrations and marches, giving lectures about Gender justice and inclusion at the sit-in area, and engaging with grassroots change agents, by observing the power dynamics of the heteronormative - heteropatriarchal Sudanese society and the gaps/conflicts that exist within the feminist movement she is posing challenging questions through her Ph.D. project as it is going to be one of the pioneering works done on deep analysis and documentation of the feminist movement in Sudan It is also one of the few that rigorously looks at the history of feminist struggles in the country.
