Ake Festival - Feminism on Fleek!!

Books, music and travel. These are a few of the things that make my life a better place. A love for these three things is one of the best gifts my parents ever gave me, so I was thrilled to be able to go to my hometown for Ake Festival, which is an annual arts and books festival. This year's theme was "This F-Word." Yup, we're not tired of talking about feminism.

If you're subscribed, you know in my last newletter I promised to give you all the Festival gist, so here it is! If you're not subscribed, you should be!! :)

I was invited to Ake by the amazing convener, Lola Shoneyin, to host a book chat with two amazing authors, Dayo Olopade and Alexis Okeowo, both of whom wrote non-fiction books: The Bright Continent (Dayo) and A Moonless, Starless Sky (Alexis).  I've linked both books, so please take a look and support by buying: I promise they are worth it!

The F Word - QOTD

All hail Chimamanda!

Feminism really gets a bad rap. Even from the people who have benefited most from it: women. It's because certain women refused to give up that women all over the world can go to school, can vote and work! Boiling it down to pounding yam, hating men or being bitter and angry and burning bras does them, and us, a huge disservice. 

What's your take on the "F" word?
