‘Women of Today’ was a time used to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to remember acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.

Our special guest speaker was Metissia a woman of many valences: a philosopher, a published author, singer and composer. The discussion revolved around the inner and outer dimensions of a woman and how to act upon each of these aspects, in order to create a balance between the two sides. Participants were also asked to share what they fear or expect from the opposite gender.

The audience was formed of young students and graduates – the next generation of decision makers!
