A reflection on: Nana Yaa Asantewaa - Queen mother of Edweso (1840 - 1921)
Tue. 20 October 2015 | All day
In the age when most people tend to think women are objects for male objectification, Yaa Asantewaa bucked this trend or notion. Yaa Asantewaa was the Gatekeeper of the Golden Stool of the Asante Kingdom of the Gold Coast in the late 19th Century. She was a successful leader, farmer, mother, an intellectual, a politician, human right activist and Commander–in-Chief of the Asante Army. She promoted womens' emancipation as well as gender equality. This presentation which draws on her achievements should therefore inspire vulnerable groups including woman and the girl child to strive to succeed in all endeavours of life – sexual health, general well-being, business etc.
