ANCWL to launch Young women's desk in Addis Ababa


The African National Congress Women's League this week will launch a task team and Young women's desk in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The league, says its leadership has been inundated with requests from South African women in the Diaspora to create a platform from which to mobilise, organise, unite and promote national consciousness and patriotism amongst women and young women in particular.

The league already has a young womens desk in South Africa.

Spokesperson of the league Tokozile Xasa says young women felt they didn't have a place in the womens league.

She says young women felt it was an old women organisations.

Xasa says it was then important to establish the young womens desk to help them understand the struggle and other issues affecting young women.

She says the league is now spreading its wings and reaching out to other women in the Diaspora.
