SXSW 2012 Forecast: Let’s Hear It For The Girls

This panel provides a rare glimpse into the multitude of ways African women are applying technology to advance Africa’s development. The panel aims to dispel the myths about African women as breeders and victims — incapable of participating in their own continent’s development, by showcasing contributions they are making in the technology field and providing insights into how they are using technology to raise awareness about, mobilize campaigns against and address human rights violations.

Speakers: Deborah Ensor, Ebele Okobi, Isis Nyong’o, Liz Ngonzi, TMS Ruge
