The launch of the first edition of ‘The Women Of Valour’ conference was held at the Ghasto Restaurant at East Legon in Accra on Tuesday, February 7,2023.
‘The Women of Valour (WoV),conference with the theme: The Untold Story Of Courageous Women’, is to highlight women with unique stories of courage.
Social Entrepreneur & Children Rights Activist Eugenia Baffour Bankoh , Multiple Award-Winning Nigerian Actress, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde and Award-Winning South African Sports Journalist, Julia Stuart, are the personalities chosen as main speakers on the day .
Speaking at the launch of the 2023 edition, Nana Aba Anamoah revealed that the Women of Valour project is an idea that has blossomed after a decade of planning.
“It’s an idea I have been mulling over for 10 years, and people who know me truly well know that I am a big fan of procrastination, not because I am lazy, but because I like to think and think thoroughly through an idea. And so, for 10 years, every single year before international women’s day, I tell myself maybe it is time to do women of valour and sometimes come up and I change my mind” Nana Aba Anamoah disclosed.
Explaining the rationale and choice of speakers, Nana Aba Anamoah, intimated how the speakers each have unique stories which have never been told.
On the future plans of the project beyond the one-day event on 7th March, spokesperson of Women of Valour, Naa Dedei Tettey explained there is an aspect of mentorship in the project that was being explored.
“We are not just looking at having the ladies gather here and have a conference and end there , we are also exploring instances where we will pay visit to senior high schools and talk to young ladies” Naa Dedei Tettey reveals
The main event will be held 7th March, a day before International Day for Women at the Labadi Beach Hotel
