Today, CNN Africa and the British Deputy High Commission in Nigeria will be hosting a discussion on what it means to be an African woman today.

It is a rare conversation of women across different generations sharing their experiences as they close out Women’s Month.

On the panel are Lola Shoneyin, author and director of Ake Arts & Book Festival; Betty Irabor, Publisher of Genevieve magazine and mental health campaigner; Hadiza Bala Usman, managing director of Nigerian Ports Authority; Ambassador Yvonne Khamati, a Kenyan diplomat and politician; Doreen Nwoke, a model, feminist and activist.

The discussion will be moderated by Stephanie Busari, who heads CNN’s multiplatform bureau for Nigeria and edits CNN Africa digital.

She says, “CNN is very committed to gender equality and issues that affect women and I am thrilled that our panel is made up of dynamic and accomplished African women of all ages from their 20s through to 60s. We felt it was important to close out women’s month with a conversation that brings these women together to have a frank dialogue about their everyday realities, challenges, and experiences. From love and marriage to careers and politics, we will tackle it all! We can’t wait for you to join us!”

Laure Beaufils, British Deputy High Commissioner to Nigeria says “I’m really looking forward to this evening’s event, celebrating different generations of African women. We’ve got a fantastic panel of thoughtful and passionate women that will help us understand the particular challenges and opportunities that women face at different points of their lives. I am proud that, through this event with CNN, we will be able to amplify the voices of these women and support other women to reclaim and command their own stories. This is at the heart of the UK’s commitment to gender equality.”

People all around the world can join in the conversation as it will be live-streamed on the CNN Africa Facebook and Instagram pages.
