Afrobarometer is joining the international community to mark this year’s International Women’s Day, by amplifying the voices of ordinary Africans in the conversations on #EmbracingEquity.

On Tuesday March 7th, 2021 at 3pm GMT, we will host a Twitter Space with advocates and gender champions to discuss the Round 9 findings from 28 African countries on gender equality and gender-based violence.

The Afrobarometer findings will highlight gender gaps and trends in education, economic empowerment, political participation and leadership. Discussions will also focus on Africans’ views on the prevalence of gender-based violence, whether it should be treated as a criminal matter, and what happens when such cases are reported to the police.

Join us for an engaging panel discussion featuring:

Nozipho January-Bardill, Afrobarometer Board Member, and the Chairperson of the Council of the Nelson Mandela University and the United Nations (UN) Global Compact Local Network in South Africa

Victoria Maloka, Head of the Coordination and Outreach Division of Africa Union’s Women, Gender and Youth Directorate

Fatou Jagne Senghore, Human Rights and Governance Expert, Founder of the Center for Women’ Rights and Leadership

The Twitter Spaces will be facilitated by Bronwyn Nielsen, Founder, The Nielsen Network.
