Filomena Delgado
Ex Minister of Family
and Promotion of Angolan Woman

”In my personal perspective, as a woman and black, (…) Angola is a country of flagrante contrasts and inequalities, permeated by structural issues of sexism and patriarchy, which still hinder the development of women and of all society. However, despite the short period of peace, only 10 years without war, there has been a clear trend in the country to resume its growth and development process. This conference, carried out by TheBridgeGlobal, is proof of that”
