Setaweet Movement, a movement established to “create a space for dialogue, research and activism by Ethiopian women and men,” organized its first Annual All-Women Academia Conference on Saturday, November 23, 2019 under the theme ‘’Writing our rights.’’

Loza Tsegaye the project coordinator for this annual conference from Setaweet movement told Addis Standard that the conference was “held to give room for women researchers to present their research related to gender issues for the public.” She added, “at first we didn’t have enough researchers to do the research so our movement prepared a project with training, in life coaching and skill development programs.”

Speaking about the goals of the conference Loza said Setaweet Movement organized the event to include women researchers from all walks of life, to encourage women researchers and promote their roles in Ethiopia and to create a platform in which they will help each other and create sisterhoods in different aspects.’ Most of the papers presented at the conference were those supported by the Setaweet project with the help from SOAS university of London.
