Women of Africa by Ahmed Sékou Touré

Women of Africa,

Women of the Revolution!

You will rise up to apex

You will journey endlessly

At a walking pace of the social Revolution,

To the rhythm of cultural progress,

In the train of economic boom

To the great and beautiful city 

Of the exacting ends

And were in leading 

Your brothers, your husbands and your children…

Women of Africa, 

Women of the Revolution!

Equality is not offered,

It must be conquered.

To emancipate the women 

Is to rid the society

Of its blemishes, its deformities.

The conquest of science,

The mastery of Technics 

Will open to the Women the way

That of intra-social combat 

Rendering her “subject and no longer object”.
