International Rural Women's Day celebration in Tanzania

10 November 2014

In Tanzania 80% of women are from rural areas and play a vital role in the development and stability of their communities.

Several mediums were used to inform and entertain the audience of the challenges facing women in their societies. A theater group, called Lingoti, preformed a show aimed at sending strong positive messages, to both men and women, about respect, role sharing and mutual participation.
