This session will be a fact finding and truth telling session, that will look at perceptions of African women online, but also our interaction with the Internet and the internet as a popular avenue for freedom of expression in many African countries, and the ensuing censorship of the Internet in African countries. This session will look at Kenya and South Africa-and how African women's sexuality and online sexual expression is limited or enhanced in various online spaces. This session will aim to build an interest in including a socio-political analysis of online content and how it reflects/influences African women's sexuality and consequently the perception.
