All in all, this research integrates a feminist perspective to the study of political agency and structure in urban Africa in the 21st century. It is my hope that, through the notion of sisterhood, I have been able to unveil the importance of the collective at the core of our human capacity of transformation. Reminding us that the individual self cannot be disassociated from the collective brings us back to the dateless lore of Ubuntu, which emphasises common bonds over differences. In this case, the feminist ideal inspires these aspects from a perspective of solidarity but also care and commitment, values that become essential to navigate through the uncertainty of our days. Still, these are also the times that allow us to build community and bring about social change in new ways, against all the odds.
