An African Election Tweet-Up: Ghanaian Women And The 2008 Election

What do women in Ghana think about the 2008 elections?

For our final tweet-up with the National Black Programming Consortium’s AfroPoP.TV, we are so honored and utterly grateful to have as our guest tweeter Ghanaian feminist Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah, who works as the Communications Officer at African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF) and co-runs Adventures From The Bedrooms Of African Women, a blog on safer sex and sexuality for African women and progressive African men. She’ll give her on-the-ground perspective on whether Ghana’s 2008 election affected the lives of women in the nation.

Join the tweetversation with Nana this Wednesday, September 26, at 11AM EDT!

P.S. And don’t forget Jarreth Merz’s documentary, An African Election, premieres next Monday, October 1, at 8:30PM on PBS’ WORLD channel!

    This looks great. Remember a tweetup is a face to face get together ( ) will you guys be getting together somewhere or is it all online via twitter ie a Twitter chat?

      Thanks for the clarification, but we’ll define our chat on Twitter as a “tweet-up,” meaning we’re meeting and conversing via Twitter, and we’ll have it via Racialicious’ timeline. Please feel free to join us there!
