Women in Mediation Breakfast Seminar co-hosted by the South African Embassy in Norway and the PRIO Centre on Gender, Peace and Security

This is a hybrid event, with participation both online and in person at PRIO. The event will be streamed on Microsoft Teams at this link.

In the month of August, South Africa celebrates Women's Month and commemorates the more than 20,000 women who marched to the Union building on 9 August 1956 in protest of the extension of Pass Laws to women. A system meant to control women even further and reduce women to passive beings. Women's Month is a tribute not only to the thousands of women who marched on that day in 1956, but also a tribute to the pioneers of the women's movement in South Africa. In an effort to highlight the role that women played at grassroots level during the liberation struggle, the South African Embassy in Oslo and the PRIO Centre on Gender, Peace and Security are co-hosting a hybrid breakfast seminar exploring the role of mediation capacity building programs in equipping women to play a meaningful role on the grassroots level.
