International Women’s Day – with ActionAid

Erica and Charlotte were invited to join ActionAid at their high profile panel discussion to celebrate International Women’s Day. ActionAid had brought together some inspirational speakers – Hilary Benn MP, Maxine Molyneaux, Cassandra Balchin, and Noerine Kaleeba. Noerine is Ugandan and has been involved in educating and raising awareness about HIV/Aids. She is now Chair of ActionAid International – and a really fantastic speaker. It was a really passionate and interesting testament to women’s movements and organisations worldwide. At the end, before the floor was asked for questions, Erica was introduced to the audience and invited to speak about her experience of women’s empowerment in Ghana.
