Poderoza: International Conference on Cabo Verdean Women

The conference addresses the need for focused discourse on issues of importance to women and offers a safe space for Cabo Verdean women’s voices to be heard. Panels celebrate their accomplishments and address the unique set of challenges they face in the areas of immigration status, self-image, health (physical and mental), education, domestic violence, community building, activism and beyond. This is an important opportunity to REBRAND the Cabo Verdean woman and the way she has been portrayed beyond her physical attributes, empowering her to RECLAIM her identity and agency as an intelligent, powerful person who makes strategic choices about her life and family—not as a victim of her circumstances but as a self-determined being. Our vision is to create a network of individuals who will empower and actively support Cabo Verdean women, particularly young women and girls, in seeing themselves as capable of achieving all of their hopes and dreams.
