AFROVISIBILITY in feminism: A panel discussion by Project Embrace – Monday, 2nd March 2020, London
A panel discussion and networking event by Facebook in partnership with Project Embrace.
Is femininity and feminism mutually exclusive for black women?

As part of International Women’s Day Project Embrace teamed up with Facebook to discuss how we can explore ideas of broadening the movement to ensure it is inclusive amd welcoming of every woman.
