We received this request today:
My sorority is sponsoring an International Awareness 1 day conference in March 09 – the focus will be women of the African Diaspora, working together. So, of course I thought of you.
Before the conference, we’re trying to gather information and opinions from as many women of African descent – all over the world, that we can, so wanted to ask if you’d be interested in participating. Basically, I have a 10-question survey that asks about your views of women in your country. The idea is for us to understand what’s good and what’s bad, so that we can work together to develop an action plan to address the issues facing all women.
If you would like to participate please email the ansers to the following questions to Veronica:
Tell me how you see the role on women in your culture/country?
What shaped your view?
Do you agree with this role for women in your culture/country?
What are the strengths for women in your culture/country?
What are the challenges?
How do and or other women you know cope with the challenges?
If you had a magic wand what changes would you make and why?
What would you like for your sisters in America to know about the culture of women in your country?
Is there a particular group of women in your country that are in need of special assistance?
Is there anything else you would like to tell us?
