    Every year on 08 March, the world marks International Women’s Day. The British Council believes that living in a diverse society is a positive thing and that this diversity should be recognised, encouraged and above all respected. We promote and engage with international days to build meaningful relationships across different cultures. That’s why we asked five young, female poets from different African countries to voice their opinions on women’s issues in modern Africa. The video showcases the voices of African women, powerfully and skilfully articulating messages we need to listen to if the theme of International Women’s Day in 2015 – Making it Happen – is to be supported.

Every year on 08 March, the world marks International Women’s Day. The British Council believes that living in a diverse society is a positive thing and that this diversity should be recognised, encouraged and above all respected. We promote and engage with international days to build meaningful relationships across different cultures. That’s why we asked five young, female poets from different African countries to voice their opinions on women’s issues in modern Africa. The video showcases the voices of African women, powerfully and skilfully articulating messages we need to listen to if the theme of International Women’s Day in 2015 – Making it Happen – is to be supported.
