Women In Africa
Presented by Zandile Mankayi
Women have fought to achieve equal rights all through history in many parts of Africa. The society keeps fighting them all round. Women’s status differs from country to country and from region to region. The show focuses on women in general from their perceived traditional responsibilities; conflicting opinions of who they are and what they should be; health challenges, women in power and business; emancipation and human rights. Do they have a voice, if so, what is it, and if not, where is the voice?
The show gives women a platform to speak for themselves and set the agenda for women. The show will explore the various platforms women occupy and challenges of being there or making it in whatever profession or vocation they have.
The show explores perception of women across the continent and the globe on whom they are and who they should be. Self-definition is critical and debunking myths about women need to be explored. What is that society should hear, know and understand about women? How are women blocked or assisted by culture to be the best they were created to be? What are those differences of perception on women around the African continent?
What influences perceptions of women and how do they reclaim their divine positions within society and within families? What makes for a balanced woman and who defines a fulfilled woman? How do we create balance between men and women in Africa?
