Women for Africa and Yale webinar on the situation of African women in the COVID-19 era


Madrid, 28 September. On Thursday, 1 October, the Women for Africa Foundation and Yale University will be holding a webinar on the subject of “African women as pillars of resilience. Ensuring the well-being of women and girls in the covid-19 era”

This virtual conference takes place within the framework of the Leadership and Governance Forum programme, which we carry out annually with the prestigious American university and which this year has been held virtually since last spring. 68 top-level political leaders from over 30 African countries have already participated in this seminar which, this year and given the situation created by the pandemic, opens up some of its sessions to an interested audience.

This is the case for next Thursday’s webinar, in which they will participate:

Nana Oye Bampoe Addo, Former Minister of Gender, Children and Social Welfare (Ghana).

Caddy Adzuba, Journalist, lawyer, women’s rights defender (Democratic Republic of Congo).

Julia Duncan Cassell, Former Minister of Gender, Children and Social Welfare (Liberia).

Jolly Kamuntu, President, South Kivu Media Women’s Association (Democratic Republic of Congo).

Within the proposed theme, the participants will place special emphasis on the area of violence against women and efforts for peace, as this year marks the twentieth anniversary of United Nations Resolution 1325 on women, peace and security without its satisfactory implementation.
