Feminism is a huge and controversial topic in Ghana. This panel brings women together to discuss feminism and feminists in a Ghanaian context, exploring the many reasons why mixed perceptions around it exist and why some shy away from the idea and label. The discussion will also highlight the role of women in changing narratives and how feminism plays an integral role in that.
This panel will feature mental health advocates, doctors, and archivists of women’s sexual journey to explore women’s sexual activity, health, and education. The conversation will highlight the many challenges and issues that women face when they become sexually active and how these affect their mental health. In addition, it will highlight underlying sexual health issues that are not discussed enough but are a huge part of the sexual journey in a woman’s life. What’s a sex and secrecy panel without exploring pleasure and intimacy as well? This panel promises to be both educational and entertaining, for women by women.
