African women have been pivotal to the development of the continent. AWB is on a mission to showcase influential female role models and the inspiration they bring to young Africans. Through our #RemarkableWomenSeries, AWB is sharing the stories of exceptional African women and their inspirational achievements.
Recognising the power of alliances for creating synergy and sustainable impact, we are partnering with @Wikimedia/@Wikipedia and @AfroCrowd to increase the coverage, visibility and representation of notable African women made available to the public. We kicked off this partnership with the #VisibleWikiWomen #WomenofColors campaign aimed at adding more images of women of color to the pages of Wikimedia/Wikipedia.
