    SYNOPSIS: Makerrere University in Kampala and the opening of a three-week training seminar for women from eastern, central and southern Africa. Sponsored by the World Council of Churches, the seminar is being held in conjunction with the All Africa Conference of Churches.

    Guest speaker at the opening session on Tuesday was Uganda's Roving Ambassador and delegate to the United Nations, Princess Elizabeth Bagaya. She was greeted by the Chairman of the Seminar, Janet Wesonga, and the organising Secretary, Betty Kanyamunyu. Two similar and previous seminars were held two years ago in West Africa, but this is the first to be held in East Africa. Delegates from South Africa, Rhodesia, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya Sudan and Uganda were in attendance.

    In her opening speech, Princess Elizabeth Bagaya spoke of the emancipation of women in society. She said that surprisingly it is the attitude of women, not men, that most threatens women's freedom. She said that women fear that they will lose their femininity by challenging men. During the three week seminar, topics for discussion will include women's law in church, family planning, African economics and health education.
