Uganda: Girl Power Goes Into Men's Minds

Female guests at this year's Girl Power Convention can expect to gain an insight into the minds of men. Code named, 'Let's hear it from the men', the annual event will host the male equivalent of a senga (paternal aunt/traditional marital counsellor) in a panel discussion including eligible bachelors, men who have been married for over 10 years and those married to very successful women in the public eye.

Pastor Jessica Kayanja, the founder of Girl Power Ministries and host of the convention, declined to reveal the names of the speakers citing the "element of surprise."

Asked why the speakers at a mostly female event are men, Pastor Jessica said, "Most conferences are conducted for women by women. We always tell young women preparing for marriage what men want." Now, for the first time, men will address women on what they expect from a relationship.

Scheduled for the evening of Friday, December 21, the convention is open to both men and women.

Pastor Jessica will also launch her 11th book titled, The Lady of His Dreams, about men's expectations in a relationship.
