Special Virtual Invitation:

July 31st, 2021

Time:

15:00 - 18:00 CAT/GMT+2

Theme:

The Political Legacy of Africa Women in Celebration of July 31, The African Union Africa's Women Day.

“The day will come when history will speak. But it will not be the history, which will be taught in Brussels, Paris, Washington or the United Nations… Instead, Africa will write its own history, and in both north and south it will be a history of glory and dignity”.

Letter from Thysville Prison to Mrs Lumumba.

Why Attend The Africa's Women Day Event?

Did you know that Africa’s Women Day has been in existence since 1962?

Did you also know that Africa is a continent filled with untold stories of female heroes?

Did you know that before America had its first vice president (after 244 years of independence), Africa already had 26 Female presidents and Prime ministers?

Did you know that Africa had its first Prime Minister (Honourable Elisabeth Domitien, from 1975-1976) before Britain had Margret Thatcher?

Do you know that from 1975 to today, Africa has had 40 Female Presidents, Vices, Prime Ministers and Deputies and 1 Chairwoman of the African Union Commission?

Do you know that as we speak, Africa has 2 Female presidents (Ethiopia and Tanzania), 3 Vice Presidents (Liberia, Zambia and Uganda), 3 Female Prime Ministers (Namibia, Togo and Gabon) and 1 Deputy Prime Minister (Namibia) in office?

This and much more is what we are focusing on with this event.

The theme of this event is; “The political legacy of African women from 1975-2021”
