Video: The pursuit of happiness and pleasure are political

Happy Mwende Kinyili, Senior Programme Officer at Mama Cash explains why it is an act of resistance to have fun. “In the face of all the violence that is taking place simultaneously, a focus on physical well-being and physical pleasure can make you feel uncomfortable. However, it is important to see that the systems which we are fighting against do not want women, girls and trans people to be happy. That makes the pursuit of happiness and pleasure political.”
