About Gender Festival
The Gender Festival is an open forum for likeminded individuals and organisations to come together to share experiences and knowledge, to celebrate achievements and assess challenges ahead, to strengthen networking and coalition-building, to build capacity and to contribute to public debate and plan collectively for social change from a feminist perspective.
The first Gender Festival was organised in 1996: Since then TGNP, FemAct and their grassroots partners have successfully organised a series of 10 Festivals on variety of Themes, reflecting the burning issues of the day.The number of Participants has steadily grown from around 400 in 1996 to over 5,000 in 2011.The Festival provides a unique space for activists from all walks of life to come together from every region of Tanzania, including Pemba and Zanzibar, as well as from neighbouring countries of Africa and beyond.
