The year 2017 has been declared the year of Oliver Tambo, as it marks what would have been Oliver Reginald Tambo’s centennial year, had he lived.
To celebrate the year, the Oliver and Adelaide Tambo Foundation and the Thabo Mbeki Foundation will join hands in hosting an event that celebrates Oliver Tambo’s championing of women’s rights, and his interaction with legendary female South African liberators.
The event will take the format of a cross-generational dialogue discussing the similarities and differences in challenges faced by women – both during O.R.’s time, and now.
There will also be input from an audience of women who worked with and/or knew O.R. The dialogue will also delve into what strategies could be implemented to continue to collectively empower and emancipate women.
To be facilitated by Athambile Masola
