As part of our celebration of International Women’s Day in March this year, OSISA launched the 6th Edition of BUWA! JOURNAL on African Women’s Experiences. This Issue features African women’s experiences of migration, highlighting the pull and push factors, the challenges and opportunities as well as gaps in policies for protection. 
With contributions by policy analysts, informal and cross-border traders, sex workers, poets and cartographers among others, the Issue highlights the multifaceted nature of feminized migration, and the gaps in response strategies in the region and beyond. 
These stories were celebrated on the day of the launch with a panel discussion with contributors. It also featured hip-hop music by Rebel Sistahs, slam poetry performance by Mandi Vundla and Phillippa Yaa De Villiers, and a photographic exhibition entitled Metropolitan Nomads published in this issue, by Nereida Ripero Minuz, Salym Fayad.
