Living While Feminist is a podcast that explores the ups and downs, ins and outs, and the emotional rollercoaster ride of living a feminist life. Each week I talk to feminists about their lives and experiences.

S2, E3: Zangose Tembo – The power of reimagining feminist futures so we can be more human Living While Feminist

Today on the podcast I’m talking with Zangose Tembo. Zangose works in the field of social justice. For the past seven years she’s worked and volunteered for notable social justice/impact organizations including One Young World, Population Council and the Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy (CFFP). In 2016, she founded The Best of Africa an online media platform that promotes freedom of speech through written and visual content on Africa. The platform has published content 400+ stories from over 150 individuals from 20 countries in Africa and the diaspora. For her work at The Best of Africa, she received recognition through the Young African Leaders Initiative in 2017 and the Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Programme in 2018. Zangose is a regular contributor on The Best of Africa, and now work independently as a development consultant. She’s exploring new platforms and opportunities to grow as a founder, storyteller and development expert. Zangose’s piece in Living While Feminist is called Human, and in that piece she says: “Everyone’s experience is different, but I know that many can relate to being ‘othered’ on a daily basis, based on biological attributes. Through comment and actions that call attention to our skin, body, hair and more, the world reminds us of our race and gender, while questioning our ability to get work done." So today I’m going to be talking with Zangose about what it means to be human, and who we have to convince that this should be a position we can all occupy.
