Lilongwe : Organisers of Ladies’ High Tea have said all is set for the second annual Unleashing Her Power Forum which will take place on July 29, 2018 at the Warm Heart Cafe in Lilongwe.
The second annual Unleashing Her Power Forum which has been organised by Encore Creatives and Events, is a high tea event with a difference that seeks to gather women of different professionals to discuss subjects that compromise their stand as women in society and the need to overcome them.
Speaking in an interview with the Malawi News Agency one of the organisers, Fawzia Osman said everything is in place as all guest speakers have confirmed their presence at the event.
She said this year’s ladies Unleashing Her Power event would run under the theme Still I Rise.
The theme has come due to the recent world economic forum report that highlights gaps between men and women in the access to resources and opportunities in the society which shows that it will take 217 years to close the gender disparity, Osman said.
The theme is from a woman point of view to rise repeatedly from the depths of socio economic prejudice and injustice with resilience as it will address realities affecting women in their everyday life and in their multiple roles, she added.
One of the topics that will be heighted will be about women politics. This is to support the 50-50 campaign which is currently going on and other topics are self-worth, she rights and social capital.
The event also seeks to raise money for a donation to women and children at Maula prison through the money from the sale of tickets that are being sold at Fifteen Thousand kwacha and a raffle draw.
