Guests will be welcomed to an educational and enlightening program offering vendors, entertainment and treats for children, and abundance of information from community activists, cultural artists, wellness providers and social scientists to uplift and inspire local Pan African Communities.
This theme reflects the present realities: the African Union (AU) has declared this year the Decade of the African Woman 2010 to 2020. Africa had its first female President elected in 2006 with Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. Sister Waangari Maathai is the first African Woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Several African states have elected women to their parliaments with 48% holding seats in Rwanda to Tanzania and South Africa holding 30% of parliamentary seats. July 2012, South African Minister Dlamina Zuma won the chair position to the African Union.
