Women’s Entrepreneurship Day special series

Each year, the world observes the Sixteen Days of Activism from 25 November, International Day of Violence Against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day. In 2014 GL promoted economic empowerment of women as a theme in the activities for the Sixteen Day campaign across the Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries. This year we foreground the theme as we join the world in celebrating Women’s Entrepreneurship Day, inaugurated at the United Nations on 19 November, 2014.   Read more and watch the video.
