The 2018 Issue of BUWA! is focusing on The Future of Women’s Work in Africa: offering a feminist exploration of how the fourth industrial revolution in particular is shaping and influencing the future of jobs on the African continent. This is important because much as this issue has found a firm space on platforms shaping global discourses, there is limited debate and reflection in Africa – let alone among African feminist economists on this subject.

The 2018 Issue of BUWA! is focusing on The Future of Women’s Work in Africa: offering a feminist exploration of how the fourth industrial revolution in particular is shaping and influencing the future of jobs on the African continent. This is important because much as this issue has found a firm space on platforms shaping global discourses, there is limited debate and reflection in Africa – let alone among African feminist economists on this subject. This Issue of BUWA provides space to introduce this debate and invite feminist economists, feminist think tanks, feminist policy shapers and practitioners and others to reflect on what the future holds for women particularly on the African continent in the world of work. The aim is to begin shaping gender-responsive policy alternatives and strategies that not only anticipate the changes, but also guarantees women’s economic autonomy.  
We are inviting critical analyses and referenced articles (2000-2500 words); case studies (of around 2000 words), opinion pieces (1500-2000 words); poems; vlogs; video stories; photo essays; cartoons; and more! We pay a prorated honorarium of up to US$500 for accepted pieces only.
