Queen Letizia Attended Women For Africa Foundation Conference

Queen Letizia of Spain
presided over the opening session of the International Conference “The bridges
of Women -Proposals from the South for global change”, on the occasion of the
10th anniversary of the Women for Africa Foundation at the UNED Humanities Building
in Madrid.  Letizia was joined by Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez.

Since its creation in 2012,
the Women for Africa Foundation, chaired by the former Vice President of the
Government, María Teresa Fernández de la Vega, has worked to transform politics
together with African women leaders, with the aim of turning them into
protagonists and making equality the driving force of development policy
agendas. After ten years of intense work promoting the transformative
leadership of women on the continent, it has important networks of leaders in
all areas of work, especially in the political sphere.

The two days long conference
has the presence of a hundred prominent professionals from different fields
such as politics, economics, feminism, culture, and the media participate from
Africa, America, and Europe.

Upon arrival, Letizia met with
the members of the congress and the members of the board of trustees, and the
advisory council of the Women for Africa Foundation. Addressing the gathering
Queen Letizia said “Progress and freedom are generated from the transmission of
knowledge. It is one of the reasons why this foundation places so much emphasis
on education. Also in health and governance and in the consolidation of
cooperation networks between African women that, on this tenth anniversary, are
projected more strongly with that intercontinental network that is launched to
build bridges between African, Latin American and Spanish women.” Then she
watched a round table “Proposals from the south for democratic progress” before
speaking with the participants and attendees.

For the day, Queen Letizia was
wearing her off-white sleeveless Pedro Del Hierro dress that we first saw
in March 2019 during her Argentina visit.
