Namibian women who impacted 2017 – Celebrating Namibian Stars

New Era asked the public to nominate women whose work contributed to a specific good cause and whose engagements in their communities touched lives this year. Further, the public was asked to nominate women whose work has been recognised as an achievement, an inspiration or motivation to the Namibian society. The public was asked to identify women who really pushed boundaries in 2017 and thus deserve to be catalogued and applauded in celebrating Namibia’s official Women’s Day (and Human Rights Day), which is celebrated annually on 10 December. This is the list of nominees, in no particular order.
