We are presenting to you some hugely dedicated, successful women in Africa’s publishing industry, who have also made their names on an international level – amongst others we are speaking to Zukiswa Wanner, who was awarded the prestigious Goethe Medal in 2020. What is the situation for Women in sub Saharan and in the Arabic speaking northern Africa? How are they overcoming the many challenges, and why is it that we in the West know so little about the situation in Africa? What can be done to change that? In these two sessions we will be highlighting two very different regions within Africa. Subsequent to the sessions, you will be able to have a chat with the speakers. PublisHer is a partner in this event.
