This essay adopts a collaborative autoethnography to unpack our experiences as Indonesian researchers and feminists during our study in a country in the Global North; the UK. In spite of the fact that Global North feminisms have expanded our understanding of gender issues, we cannot help but sometimes feel marginalised and invisible within these theories because, very often, they merely discuss the experiences of women in the North and homogenise the experiences of women in the South. Drawing on postcolonial theories, this essay explores our negotiation of identities as we attempt to decolonise such experiences.
