The WoMin African Alliance is growing! We are looking for a progressive, activist and feminist researcher and analyst to coordinate WoMin’s Pan African research agenda.
- Conceptualise and design research addressing the theme of COVID-19 and mining that will expose & explore how mining capital, in collaboration with States, has used this moment to adjust and exploit conditions of crisis to expand its business and profits, greatly shaping the future developmental landscape.
- Conceptualise and lead an African project exploring the shape, form and implications of International Finance Institution (IFI) investments in COVID-19 relief and recovery efforts.
- Design a ground-breaking ecofeminist cost-benefit analysis of ecological/climate, social, economic, political and intergenerational costs and benefits of a large-scale extractives project.
- Develop information and advocacy resources and tools based on the research findings to support organising and campaigning.
We hope to fill this post in December 2020 for an early February 2021 start. The successful candidate can be based in South Africa or anywhere in the region, working from a home base.

WoMin, launched in October 2013, is an African ecofeminist alliance which works alongside organisations of women, peasants and mining-impacted communities, and in partnership with other sympathetic organisations, to make visible and publicise the impacts of extractives on peasant and working-class women; to support women’s organising, movement-building and solidarity; and to advance, in alliance with numerous others, an African post-extractivist, ecologically just, women-centred alternative to the dominant destructive model of development.
WoMin is an all-women feminist organisation, headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa, with staff based across the continent. WoMin is very committed to recruiting a black African woman and would prioritise this as a criterion in the recruitment process
