#divcon - #UNESCO "#women in African history"

#Gender equality is one of the global priorities of UNESCO as well. As such, the teaching of history has a crucial role to play since it enables the understanding of cultural dimensions, and highlights the social, political, and economic conditions in the lives of women in past societies.

"Women in African history" highlights twenty women. They should all have Wikipedia articles in all the languages used in Africa.

Obviously there are many more African women notable enough for our attention but as these women have been picked out by UNESCO, they and subjects associated with them, deserve the tender love and care that makes them high quality items in Wikidata.
