It’s not news that as a society there is still a long road to eradicating sexism and misogyny. This means that most Nigerian women, myself included, find themselves dealing with the very real impact of benevolent and hostile sexism on a daily basis. Choosing to challenge means not being afraid to speak up for myself and for other women, and facilitating conversations around these uncomfortable topics. It means keeping my head up and making my own little changes through education, through conversations, through expression, in hopes that something that we are doing will make life better and easier for the next generation of women.
Summarily, access and inclusion mean freedom from gender biases. An ideal Africa would be one where women have as much access to the tools they need to build financial wealth, career growth as their male counterparts, a place where girls are not only aware of all the opportunities in every industry that is available to them but are also encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities. I envision a world where access to digital tools will no longer be a barrier to great education and dreams, right from the grassroots level upwards.
