The popular African proverb “Until the lions get their own historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunter” reminds us of the importance of telling our own stories. WoMin, an African gender and extractives alliance, is taking this saying to heart by crowd-funding of a ground-breaking pan-African feminist film entitled “No Good Comes from the Mine” to highlight African women’s resistance to coal, oil and uranium mining in South Africa, Uganda and Niger, as well as the people-centered alternatives that these women and their communities are building.
