#3  S01.E03 - 16 days of activism for no violence against women and children

As you may have noticed, 16 days of activism for no violence against women and children starts today. We want to take this opportunity to dedicate today's podcast episode to women in Africa. The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom has set itself the mandate of advancing women rights causes in Sub-Saharan Africa and across the globe. The proportion of women in leading positions in business and politics is alarmingly low. Today we find ourselves in East Africa, more precisely in Moshi, the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania. Activist Elizabeth Minde joins host Nangamso Kwinana. Elizabeth is a legal practitioner and an advocate of the high court of Tanzania, as well as managing director of Kilimanjaro Women Information Exchange and Community Organisation or KWIECO. Elizabeth and her organisation provide legal counselling to marginalised women in rural communities. Their vision is for a society that takes responsibility to protect all human rights.
