# International Philanthropist Melinda Gates will deliver the 13th Desmond Tutu International Peace Lecture at the Cape Town International Convention Centre today. This year’s Peace Lecture theme is, Unlocking Women’s Power for Peace and Prosperity. Gates will be the second international figure to speak at the lecture in the absence of the late Archbishop, who passed away in December 2021. The Desmond and Leah Tutu Foundation says Gates will explore the transformative potential of women in society, how they impact their families, communities, and cultures, and the path to peace and prosperity.
