Our event will have a largely female student audience from Universities along Thika Road. Our speakers are self proclaimed feminists who are experts in their field. We had a program coordinator for the Equity Group Foundation, Elishibah Speak to the audience on what it is to be a Positive Feminist. Our second speaker was Joephine Njambi an alumni from the United States International University who is currently a consultant on Africa Relations. Our final speaker of the day is a student from USIU Barbara Karuana who spoke of her 3 questions she would ask her teenage self. The attendees left inspired with a greater sense of what it means to be a Positive Feminist.
