Our work

Temsalet means exemplary in Amharic, the working language of Ethiopia. Temsalet is a creative platform aiming to shine a positive light on the women of Ethiopia we consider to be role models, sheroes, game changers and exemplary citizens.

Temsalet documents the stories of outstanding Ethiopian women who hold positions of power or excel in their respective fields. While also highlighting the lives of everyday women who make immense contribu- tions to their society, live inspiring lives and struggle for gender equality without any official institutional affiliation. Our goal is to engage and inspire our audience, Ethiopian society, and Ethiopian diaspora com- munities—both men and women—by sharing the courageous lives of these women.

Our vision is to be a leading resource hub for herstory documentation through digital media platforms and offline mediums such as books, zines and calendars. We embrace the concept of herstory as a way to re- dress the absence of women and solidify their significant historic contributions in the public memory and in Ethiopian historical literature and archives. In this effort, we profile phenomenal women of Ethiopia who have refused to choose between greatness and womanhood, defiant women with the courage to push against stereotypical boundaries, cultural and social barriers to define their own destiny. It is our hope that the re-telling of these stories will inspire generations to come.
