Khanysa Mabyeka


Khanysa Mabyeka is a gender and development consultant with a graduate degree in Law, and masters degrees in International Cooperation and Political Science. With more than 10 years of experience in the field of gender equality, her recent work has been built around research projects (social norms, gender-based violence in the workplace), evaluations (gender-based violence, education programs), design of manuals (gender budgeting, CEDAW explanations) and an integration of gender at the institutional level (gender profile of Mozambique, gender baselines for development agencies). She is also a feminist activist interested in reflecting on issues of identity, power, social norms and the politicization of mini-manifestations of patriarchy. She blogs in Portuguese on mamilosanarquistas.com (anarchist nipples), which reflects on changes (identity, power relations, etc.) experienced through motherhood.
