The Founding of FEMRITE

Hon. Mary Karooro Okurut | Mother Hen

FEMRITE, The Uganda Women Writers Association, was founded by Hon. Mary Karooro Okurut in 1995.

The first meeting that gathered women writers was held in Mary's Office at Makerere University where she was a lecturer in the Literature Department at the time. 

The women were excited by Mary's proposals and more meetings were held to brainstorm the formulation of a women writers' association.
