Architecture Event: African Women Rights and their Role in Sustainable Development (AWRSD)
In the first edition of the International Conference on “African Women Rights and Its Role in Sustainable Development,” IEREK gives the floor to researchers and human rights activists to discuss the history and the steps towards women empowerment, starting from the golden ages, moving towards the Middle Ages of slavery and colonization, up until the contemporary years of the 19th and the 20th centuries.
The conference will discuss the role of women in preserving cultural identities and dialects, securing familial and communal ties, and facing gender stereotypes. It also analyzes the effects of urbanization and modernity on the African woman and discusses the laws and legislations that resulted from this. The conference raises the question of how human rights serve African women and guarantee them safe and liberating communities.
