FemInStyle Africa will be hosting a one-day hybrid (online and in-person) event to celebrate International Women’s Day on the 11th of March 2022, with the in-person event happening at Alliance Française in Accra, Ghana. This women-only event will be delivered in a hybrid format, with some attendees in-person, in Accra, and hundreds more joining virtually from around Africa and the rest of the world. The event will run from 1pm to 7pm.
International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global United Nations instituted and led day, set aside specifically to celebrate women worldwide, through themes that focus on specific issues affecting women worldwide. IWD is an annual celebration marked on the 8th of March each year. This year’s celebration is under the theme “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow” – #BreakTheBias.
Our partners for this event include Marie Stopes Ghana, Heal and Chill, Dance for Mental Health, Coca Cola, Global Media Alliance, Media General, Alliance Française among others.
The objective of this event is to: Create a safe space for nuanced solution-oriented intersectional dialogue and experiences, bring together relevant stakeholders (individuals and organizations) to share and foster collaborations to accelerate progress and achieve sustainable change, initiate a launchpad for similar empowering events in Ghana and other parts of the continent, and celebrate progress made in the fight for women’s development in all spheres of life.
About FemInStyle Africa
FemInStyle Africa is a registered non-profit Digital Magazine that mainly focuses on amplifying the voices and experiences of African women, exclusively in the media space. Our focus is to build the capacity of women and girls to ensure that they are well equipped to effectively transition into taking up roles in both civil and political spheres of society. This for us means carrying out boots-on-the-ground projects and innovative initiatives. Our goal as an organization is to amplify the voices of women in Africa, and raise awareness on issues that affect women throughout the continent, encourage women to get involved in both grassroots organizing and political participation to influence policy and tackle the challenge that is the erasure of women in media.
