iKNOW Politics's picture

On September 19, the week of candidate school began with the official launch of iKNOW Politics; an online platform to support women’s political participation around the world. Over 250 women attended the launch, the largest event held by iKNOW Politics in Africa.

Marie-Ange Lukiana, the Congolese Minister for Women and Families, opened the event with a rousing speech that called on women to take their place in Congolese political life.  « In this campaign we do not want to see any woman attacking another » declared the Minister to loud applause.  

The audience was very enthusiastic, at one point chanting « Solidarité avec les femmes du monde entier» (women solidarity, around the world) and encouraging one another across party lines.
