Description DM2008081316:GHAED:WOMEN:POLITICS:PERSONALITIES:OCT 1960 - Womens Conference Accra - Mrs. Claude Barneet, Chicago: "I really feel it was a wonderful idea, as everything has to have a beginning. We never could have known how necessary it is to know each other, and this is the first effort..... To see the land of our forefathers, the land the blackman is in the majority and not the minority, is itself enough to make this conference worthwhile." Women of Africa and of African descent, from the United States of America, West Indies, North and West Africa, gathered for the first great Conference at the Commonwealth Hall of the University College of Ghana recently. They were guests of the Ghana Women's Movement led by Mrs Evelyn Amarteifio. Conspicuously absent were the women of East, Central South, and French Africa. (Photograph by Drum Photographer BAHA)
