UhuruRadio takes on struggles of African women in the revolution with new program!

As stated as the 9th point of the Working Platform of the African People’s Socialist Party:

“We want an end to the political and social oppression and economic exploitation of African women. We believe in the absolute, unequivocal, political, social, and economic equality of African women and men. We believe that a fundamental test of the progressive or revolutionary character of any organization, party, movement, or society is its commitment, confirmed in practice, to the destruction of the special oppression of women and the elevation of women to the rightful place as equal partners and leaders in the forward motion of the development of human society and as leaders, makers, and shapers of human history.”

In this commitment to elevate African women “to the rightful place as equal partners and leaders,” the African Women in Revolution! radio show, airing on UhuruRadio for the first time on Sunday, September 6, aims to highlight the generally under stated contributions of African women in the struggle for liberation. By exploring issues ranging from the history of matriarchal African cultures to the history of African women in the movement to liberal feminism and the detriment its done to the struggles of African women to how African women suffer under colonialism to defining the African Internationalist approach to the women question, this show will give voice to issues that rarely get discussed in society. It will also address challenges like the global rape crisis, violence against women, alternatives to involving the state in domestic contradictions and the crisis of the African family that working class African women face on a day-to-day basis.

African Women in Revolution! is hosted by Chioma Oruh, chair of the African Socialist International North American Organizing Committee. Chioma is a Nigerian-born African woman and resides in Washington, DC. She is a writer, poet and scholar who has done extensive research on the role of music in African liberation struggles around the world as well as the U.S. foreign police in Africa with a focus on AFRICOM. Chioma has also worked in a creative capacity with African women, most notably she has been part of the Saartjie Project – a theatre company that produces creative pieces to address the struggles of African women worldwide.

So, tune in every Sunday at 7pm on Uhuru Radio for African Women in Revolution!
