"Zimbabwe has been going through difficult times politically and economically. The brunt of these challenges has greatly affected women more than anything else. In wake of this, the launch was premised on building conversation on how women can strengthen their solidarity in this kind of environment. The launch was graced by key activists from the women’s movement and was meant to facilitate a dialogue on historical narratives on solidarity in the women’s movement in Zimbabwe. The presentation was facilitated by a renowned women’s rights activist in Zimbabwe called Rudo Mashamba." - OBR Global Coordinator Nyasha Sengayi on the recent launch of #1BillionRising 2017 in Zimbabwe. #RiseInSolidarity
