#145- Melene Rossouw- Creating a women lead movement to achieve Gender equality in her lifetime

This episode features Melene Rossouw, born and raised in Cape town. She got her start as an activist early in life when she was elected into the Student Council at University. Knowing the struggles of women and girls who grew up in poverty, Melene was motivated to form and develop the Women Lead Movement, an organization whose aim is to educate, empower and inspire women to lead social change in their communities through Human Rights and Leadership training curricula.

Melene is an admitted Attorney by the High Court in South Africa; a 2018 Obama Foundation Leader: Africa; 2019 Mandela Washington Fellow and an internationally recognised Gender Rights activists by ONE Global Campaign. 

She never dreamed, when she was called a backyard dweller as a child, that she should one day be recognized throughout the world as an activist, that she would make a difference, that she would actually possess powers that could change people’s lives.
