The Embassy of France in Tanzania, is pleased to invite you at the Alliance Française of Dar es Salaam to a debate on “Women in Politics”, to take place on Thursday, May 12th at 18:00, followed by a concert by the band the Golden Voices at 20:00.
Women were allowed to vote and stand for election in 1944 in France and in 1959 in Tanzania. Such simple and fundamental rights are actually a recent fact. This debate will look at the issues, the difficulties, the influence and the place of women in politics today.
The panel will consist of Anne-Cécile Mailfert, spokesperson of "Osez le féminisme" and founder of "La Fondation des Femmes", Aida Kiangi, East Africa Manager at Wind Lab, , Victoria Mandari, chairperson of the Gender Forum Coalition (GFC) and Mary Rusimbi, director of the Women Fund Tanzania. Maria Sarungi Tsehai, communication expert, will moderate the debate which will take place in English.
Uniting three young singers, The Golden Voices, is a dynamic band that will make you dance. Diem, Law and Maliya Jackson were revealed in France by the show "The Voice". Allying three different styles in duos and trios, their lively performance will take you from rap to gospel, soul to French variety…
Both events are open to public.
