Pan-African Women’s Day (PAWD) is held annually across the world to celebrate the first Pan-African Women’s Conference and the creation of the Pan-African Women’s Organization (PAWO) in 1962 in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.
African women make up 51% of the African family world-wide and we know that they have been responsible for many victories throughout the years against our oppressors, as the foundation for raising families and have served as the bedrock for entire communities. With this being the case, we believe that it is important that we celebrate the lives and victories of African/Black women worldwide on Pan-African Women’s Day.
This year’s theme is: “Empowering African/Black Women: For Ourselves, Families, Communities and Africa!! We celebrate the contributions of African women worldwide in Africa, North, Central and South America and the Caribbean.” The All-African Women’s Revolutionary Union (AAWRU) made her-story with several qualitative Pan-African Women’s Day events with the London celebration yet to come. Each event was filled with interactive workshops, revolutionary culture, fabulous food and we believe that we charting a way forward to Pan-Africanism. We thank you for your support of our recent Pan-African Women’s Day celebrations. We thank those who attended the event and those who financially contributed to the newsletter below.
