Event : On April 12th, 2016, at 6 pm

On Thursday 12th May 2016, at 6 pm, the Embassy of France is organizing a high level debate about Women in Politics, which will take place at the Alliance française of Dar es Salaam.

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, former spokesperson for the French CSO ‘‘Osez le féminisme’’ and founder of ‘‘La Fondation des Femmes’’, Aida Kiangi, East Africa Manager at Wind Lab (global wind energy development company), 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.


The debate will be followed by a concert of “The Golden Voices”, 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…

Join us for an evening full of exchanges!
