“The highlight of my work life is when I get to spend time treating my patients. The first time I thought of perusing a currier in medicine was when I was just a child. My mother was a pharmacist at Black Lion (Tikur Ambesa) Hospital and I used to follow her around at work. The patients, the doctors, pharmacists and nurses and how they all worked together was what fascinated me.
The love I have for school was something I got from my parents. After high school, I went to Jimma University to study medicine. When I was in med school I never thought I would actually study neurology. So after graduation and before I returned to Addis Ababa I specialized on internal medicine for two years.
After I returned home and started working at Tikur ambesa hospital and saw the need for neurologists I decided to add another specialization in neurology. When I started work I didn’t know I was the first women neurologist in Ethiopia. When I graduated I was one of the only 6 neurologists in the country.
One of my dreams is to see more women neurologists in Ethiopia. For young people, out there I want to say, if you work hard enough and know your goal there is no way you won’t be successful!”

Piloting is considered to be of the most attractive career ventures and Ethiopia one of the countries in the world where gender equality has faced and still faces a bit of a rocky history. But it seems Amsale is trying to change that.
Amsale Gualu was born in Bahirdar and raised in Addis Ababa. She attended Assai Public school and for high school went to Bole secondary school. She applied to Ethiopian airlines but didn’t get in so she went on to study for a BA in architecture and urban planning at Addis Ababa University. She reapplied four years later and got accepted. She graduated in 2002 as the number six female pilot. After completing her required 4475 hours as co-pilot, she finally earned her captaincy in 2010 flying an Ethiopian airlines Bombardier from Addis Ababa to Gondar.
She said she would like to see more women achieving great things in their respective careers stating, “If you are prepared, you can do it. You shouldn’t give up because you think it is difficult.”

Aida Ashenafi has been in the film business for more than 15 years. She attended Sandford English School for a few years and was sent to boarding school in the US. She pursued a triple major in Film, Photography and Visual Arts at Ithaca University in Ithaca, New York, graduating in 1999.
Her career started when she spent a year interning on the movie “I Like It Like That”. Then she co-founded Sauce Entertainment, a New York-based production and post-production company. She has produced TV commercials for companies such as Nike, Panasonic, Coca-Cola, Dark and Lovely. She supervised music videos for R Kelly, Back Street Boys, Britney Spears, Joe, and many others. She produced her first big movie Naked Man, a script by Oscar winner Ethan Coen.
Aida returned to Ethiopia and founded Mango Productions with her business partner Feleke Deneke. Mango Production launched its first documentary film Guzo (The Journey). She has also produced many music videos for Jhonny raga and was also the producer for Taitu music video by Yegna music group.
Working as a woman filmmaker in Ethiopia, Aida has had to face a lot of skepticism. Aida’s dream is for Mango Production to be more corporate and systematized. She hopes to work on feature films again and is looking for a timeless story to tell. Her advice to young women: Education is important, but experience is just as important.

A true heroine, Sister Zebider Zewdie, founder and Executive Director of Mary Joy Charity Organization was born in 1963. After high school, she went to Addis Ababa Nursing School. Then worked in different hospitals and NGO’s. “I opened up my own clinic and began to render free delivery services. Presently, we are serving over 1.5 million population, of whom 36,000 children, 10,000 youth, 5,000 elderly people and over 8, 000 baby care and guardians in the areas of education, health care, orphanage and elderly care, women and children affairs and poverty reduction activities.
In Mary Joy there is a project that works to improve the lives of children; who lost their families. We have also a project known as Kokeb (Star) Pram Project.
When we come to women’s affairs, our activities focus on creating opportunities that enable them generate income, empower themselves economically and let them lead stable life. However, we give priorities to educate them - how to lead secure life. We offer entrepreneurship training to women to make them self-reliant. For those, who organize themselves with 20 members, we provide an initial loan capital that exceeds to four million Birr.
We also work to battle cervical cancer. There is a negative attitude towards women with cervical cancer. Due to this woman try to hide the cases for the reason of social exclusion. To end this, we are working to bring change in public attitudes.
The other issue we work diligently is family planning. We are working to raise the awareness of the youth towards family planning issues.” “The total budget of the Organization is 26 million Birr. However, that is not enough to be accessed for the larger segments of the needy people.
The Center in hawassa that opened recently is multipurpose elderly center. The Center also has recreational rooms which elders can watch TV, play all types of cultural games, a library, gymnasium, massage rooms, computer center aside from fulfilling their basic needs.”

Bruktawit Tigabu began her professional career as a primary school teacher in Addis Ababa. Determined to improve the conditions of children in her country, she looked for ways to educate children on a mass scale.
In 2005, with her husband, Bruktawit set up Whiz Kids Workshop. Working from their living room, using sock puppets, computer graphics and their own voices, they began producing Tsehai Loves Learning, the first educational preschool television program in the country.
Responding to the critical need to improve literacy rates and school retention rates in Ethiopia, Bruktawit’s organization created a spin-off program called Tsehai's Fidel School which systematically improves the methodology of teaching reading and writing in a phonetic, fun, and interactive way, supported by educational workbooks and reading materials.
In addition she has created an animation series, entitled “Tibeb Girls”. The series is about three African adolescent super heroines trying to understand the changes happening to their bodies and the numerous struggles that girls of their age go through, including forced marriage.
The three girls, Fikir, Tigist, and Fiteh, use their superpowers to deal with injustices and harmful practices toward girls in Africa.
Bruktawit was named a Rolex Young Laureate in 2010 for her efforts to reduce the child mortality rate in Ethiopia.

Consent is Hot, Assault is Not!!🙅🏾✋🏾👎🏾
Marital rape (or spousal rape) is the act of sexual intercourse with one's spouse without the consent of the other spouse. It is a form of domestic violence and sexual abuse.
The Ethiopian Penal Code defines rape as: "an act of compelling a woman to submit to sexual intercourse outside wedlock by the use of violence or grave intimidation or after having rendered her unconscious or incapable of resistance". Based on this definition, it is argued that the law reckons rape as a crime only if it takes place outside a wedlock thus discarding the one occurring within a wedlock as a crime.
