Video: Tackling violence, HIV and political exclusion in Ghana

For an invaluable insight into the life-changing work being carried out by our partners in Ghana, watch these two short films recorded at our recent event Ghanaian Women Driving Success.

Tackling violence and HIV

Margaret Brew-Ward of women’s rights group Gender Studies and Human Rights Documentation Centre (Gender Centre), talks about the risks girls face regarding the HIV and AIDS infection, drawing on cultural traditions and the link to domestic violence.

 

Women know politics

Bernice Sam from NGO Women in Law and Development in Africa (WiLDAf) talks about their brilliant campaign to get more women into politics. Currently, a mere 19 out of 230 MP’s in Ghana are women.
