- We are thrilled to have two Mandela Fellows join us at the Center this summer! We welcome Josephine Nkurunziza (Rwanda), a gender and accountability specialist with experience in program management of girls’ and women’s issues, and Ayanda Simangele (Swaziland), a champion of equal rights in community development. They will be working with us on the 16 Days Campaign.
- We had the pleasure of hosting former Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff for a luncheon to discuss feminist political leadership during a rising conservative climate. The dialogue took place among an audience of feminist human rights leaders who engaged with Ms. Rousseff on issues crucial to their work and constituencies.
