International day of the girl child is held on 11th October globally, and although some progress has been made in uplifting women’s lives in Africa, much still needs to be done to overcome the cultural, economic and health burdens borne by both young and elderly women on the continent. The problems and challenges continue to be a giant figure!
Tanzanian born artist, Gadi Ramadhani will be holding his exhibition that will tell the Girl Child story as it is. He was motivated to create this work from recent cases in Tanzania regarding the legal age of marriage consent.
He has chosen to speak out against child marriage through his artistic work as his contribution to the society as a professional artist. Through this platform he will addresses this very thorny important society issue. His work recognizes the changes that need to be made both on a legal and society-wide level as
well as the unequal power dynamics within homes that perpetuate exploitation of women, from domestic abuse to forced marriage.
