The Role of Women in the Integrated Development of the African Continent
15 October 2021
10:00—11:15
In the past few years, the African continent has witnessed a genuine breakthrough in terms of progress on women’s rights and opportunities. According to the United Nations, the proportion of women in parliaments is at around 30% in 11 African nations. What’s more, the level of female participation in the commercial sector is at 61.9% across the African continent. The African Union’s development concept and Agenda 2063 for the continent place a firm emphasis on strengthening the role of women in all spheres of life. Giving women greater rights and opportunities is key to ensuring development in African nations over the next 50 years.

What measures to support women in African nations are most relevant today? What practices and developments by the Eurasian Women’s Forum could be utilized and rolled out in this context? What main aims and objectives are women’s communities and specialized organizations setting during preparations for the 2nd Russia—Africa Summit in 2022?
