The panel was composed 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, lawyer and chairperson of the Gender Forum Coalition(GFC) and Mary Rusimbi, director of the Women Fund Tanzania.
