Woman Scream 2018-Accra-Ghana

On the  4th March, the Woman Scream Programme came off with an introduction and welcome by the President of the Ghana Association of Writers, Nana Kwasi Gyan-Apenteng.  He spoke about the Internal Woman’s Day and handed over to Mariska Araba Taylor-Darko, the coordinatior.  Mariska spoke about the theme and why it was so important to make everyone aware of the trials of women in the world.

Young ladies were given the opportunity to perform poetry on the theme.  Many were full on emotion and during the question and answer time they were given the opportunity to talk about what inspired them to write the poems.  Some said it was from observing around them, from experience and from watching items on the news.   

Other members of the audience also had some readings and poems and the evening came to a close with networking and registration of new members who would continue to come to the GAW Sunday events held on the first Sunday of every month at 3pm to showcase their writings.  They  were inspired to take up the cause of Women and their issues and problems to make all men and women aware of the problems.
