Pan African entrepreneur, author, and RED | For Africa, CEO Adebola Williams on Monday 7 March, hosted 100 of the most influential African women to a special event to commemorate International Women’s Day in Lagos.
Themed ‘An evening with African Power Girls’, the event also captures the essence of the recently-published ‘African Power Girls,’ which underscores the notion of positivity, diversity, and inspiration among young girls who are faced with inequality, chauvinism, and misogyny. The 3-volume book, written by Adebola Williams, is a compendium of the stories of African heroines, with each page showcasing the strength, freedom, challenges, and victory of spotlighted female legends.
