“The significance of the 60th anniversary of the African Unity towards socio-economic inclusion of an ordinary African Woman”
On 25 May 1963, the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), now known as the African Union (AU) was founded in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This year therefore marks the the 60th anniversary of this union.
This year the AU celebrated the Day under the slogan: “Our Africa Our Future” using the hashtag #OurAfricaOurFuture. Therefore, there can never be a bright future at the exclusion of both women and young. Women led the way when Africa’s Women’s Day was proclaimed as a day to be commemorated during the first conference of thePan-African Women’s Organization (PAWO) which was held in July 1962 in Dar es Salaam Tanganyika (now known as Tanzania).
Africa’s Women’s Day offers a national, continental and global opportunity to recall and affirm the significant role of African women in the evolution of a strong Pan-African identity, with shared values, objectives and vision for the future, as well as women being key contributors towards achieving Africa’s inclusive growth and sustainable development agenda anchored in the AU vision
of an integrated prosperous and peaceful Africa. Therefore, the voice of women must be heard as the continent celebrates this milestone with many transformational programs that are meant to build the Africa we want.
