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
