Tanzania Feminist Collective was founded in May of 2020, as a way to connect and build community amongst young Tanzanian feminists, both in-country and within the diaspora.
It's founding members were acutely aware of the power that online media is able to harness, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, the Collective has been able to solidify itself as a feminist digital resource centre, with a working website where articles will be posted regularly, and an Instagram page where feminist knowledge is disseminated into bitesize pieces.

At Tanzania Feminist Collective, our ability to function rests on the strength that is put into place by our values.
Our values are the core of our collective. We strive to ensure a safe, collaborative and nurturing environment to all those who are a part of the collective, whether that is on a long-term or a short term basis.
We strive to be a digital space that embodies the values of respect, communication, honesty and integrity. Complementary to this, we do not tolerate any form of bigotry, including colourism, racism, fatphobia, queerphobia, misogyny and sexism.
