Minna Salami, writer and African feminist blogger at multiple award winning site, MsAfropolitan.com, will be speaking about African women and leadership at MEDays, the international forum dubbed as “the South’s own forum” taking place November 13 to 16 2013 in Tangier.

For the sixth edition of the international MEDays forum, high level policymakers from Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America will coalesce to discuss, among other things, energy challenges, social justice, political Islam, security threats and economic growth.

Among the speakers are heads of states and ministers, government officials, entrepreneurs, representatives from intergovernmental organisations, experts and civil society representatives.

Salami looks forward to highlighting African feminist concerns saying, “Being able to contribute and shape the discussion at the only forum organised by the south, for the south, is a great honour.”

She continued to say, “Discussions from MEDays panels are known to result in real actions. Declarations from the forum will be communicated to key political and economic decision makers in Africa. It is my intention to highlight the achievements African women leaders have made while also insisting that women need to voice our concerns even louder.”
