As the 8 women in the planning meeting go to their rooms to retire for the night , I reflect on the day's proceedings. What have we achieved, what are we going to do, where are we going? These are the questions going through my mind. Looking back and reflecting on the conversation we had during the day of the different contexts of the region. The appointment of Jacob Zuma, the GNU in Zimbabwe, the creation of COZWHA+ in Zambia , recession in the USA and the impact of the OBAMA administration on the world.

Not yet Uhuru! March 8 was International Women’s Day. This is a day marked to ‘celebrate women and recognize the great role they play in the world’. Women are not just women they are mothers, lovers and caregivers too. Yet for many women this day really had no meaning, not because it’s not special but it does not fulfill any purpose in their lives. Women bear the brunt of social, political, economic woes, yet they are still treated as second-class citizens.
I have been reflecting on the circumstances of the women we have been meeting during the Malawi workshops, on how they live and how they cope with the changes in their lives in the context of HIV and AIDS. The more women we meet the more I see the vulnerability, fluidity and discontinuity of their lives but also how the traditional assigned roles gives them the tools and the courage to reconstruct their lives especially after divorce or when their husbands die.

Written by Amanda Awethu I cannot believe I almost gave up on coming to Cape Town for the 11th AWID Forum. I was on the verge of giving up as I had hassles trying to get the South African visa - every time I go to apply for a visa (twice a year), there are always new rules. Anyway, I am happy to be connecting with feminists and getting affirmation that feminism is the way to go in my work and my life.
