dc.description.abstract This issue of Feminist Africa is a special edition which foregrounds the research created, with the young women, through the five different teams. Jill Bradbury and Peace Kiguwa, working with a team of young women, write about their own visual mapping of the University of the Witwatersrand as a way of re-seeing campus streets and surroundings in terms of sexual pleasure and sexual vulnerability. Sethunya Mosime, Poloko Ntshwarang, and Godisang Mookodi from the University of Botswana focused on the use of personal story-telling to generate dialogue about sexual conventions and the negotiation of gendered expectations for young women on campus, and off. Pieces by Tanja Bosch and Susan Holland-Muter, of the University of Cape Town, Lucy Edwards-Jauch from the University of Namibia, and by Naomi Wekwete and Charity Manyureke of the University of Zimbabwe add texture and diversity to the articles’ analysis of the work with young women on questions of gender-based violence and policy, the politics of space and sexuality, the meaning of HIV-prevention campaigns, and the politics of gender and sexual pleasure. In five teams, very interesting, cross-generational action research projects were developed, and the material presented in Feminist Africa 17 is rich with potential for theory on what it means to take up SRHR work where young women’s lives are concerned. en_US
