“If you educate a man you educate one individual, but if you educate a woman you educate a family. " | African Proverb
The place and spaces that women and men 'belong' is a conversation that has been ongoing for decades... and we still have a long way to go.
Why are gender roles so controversial, especially within an African context? Why can't Africans let gender roles go? Why do we still have to explain what 'equality' looks like and defend ourselves as women?
On this episode, we go all in from defining which gender roles are typically attributed to women, the pressure of it, our thoughts on gender neutrality and unpacking the reasons why we feel gender roles will continue to be a hot topic in African society.
