The Revolution Continues: Sudanese Women’s Activism

Sarah O. Nugdalla ()

A chapter in Gender, Protests and Political Change in Africa, 2020, pp 107-130 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract This chapter historicizes the evolution of Sudanese women’s activism beginning with the facets of the former regime's Islamization project. It highlights how women’s bodies and ideas of morality and respectability are employed by the state as sites of control, effectively revealing the key mobilizing points of the Sudanese women’s movement post-1989. The chapter examines the ways in which the political context in Sudan has influenced space for activism and explores responses to the erasure of civic space. In uncovering the overlooked nuances emerging from the #FallThatIsAll movement, the chapter engages with the change in discourse surrounding women’s activism and underlines the sustenance of feminist resistance as constant, be it under oppressive regimes or popular uprisings.
