    Picture this: you are a 12-year-old girl, surrounded by your family in your compound in rural Togo. You want nothing more than to go to secondary school, graduate, and maybe move to the capital, Lome, get a good job and send money home someday in the future. Life is mostly good and simple – you […] More

    Pink Matter

    My evening started this way: I looked into the mirror and nodded my approval at the reflection of my eager self looking back at me. I applauded myself for cultivating this iconic outfit. It was simple, yet complex. Safe, yet daring. Most of all, it was a debut outfit. By this, I mean that every […] More

    From Combat to Contour

    Finish this sentence with the first word the comes to mind: “Military women are___.” I’m willing to bet that your chosen word was something along the lines of “strong,” “brave,” or “amazing.” What society doesn’t know is that we are all of that and more. We are fashionistas, moguls, and inspirations as well. If you take the time to look deeper into […] More

    There Is No Grey Area: Moving On From Assault

    In my first year of university I was sexually assaulted. Since then, a huge development in understanding sexual assault through media outlets has taken place.

    Why Science Needs to Listen to Women

    It’s important to note that what I am about to say is all my personal opinion based on my experiences of gendered approaches to learning. It was a Thursday morning in the middle of winter and we were in a gruelling math lesson. Our teacher had written a problem on the whiteboard and announced, “Shout […] More

    Anxiety, My Mother and Me

    With the conversation around mental health constantly growing, I am proud to be part of a generation that is slowly (but surely) becoming more and more aware of this issue. This includes conversations from how we identify and manage mental illnesses to mental health within black households. Parents are being taught how to communicate better […] More
