    The challenges of men working with men

    The job of Edward Wageni, the director of HeForShe*, is to find the tools to help men change their behaviours towards women and push for structural shifts on all levels.

    Genocide: Men are also victims of rape

    Genocide: Men are also victims of rape

    In Cry Like Boy, we have spoken about the trauma caused by Liberia’s civil war. But conflict is a global issue. In this new episode, we ask Adama Dieng about the impact such a violent act as genocide can have on men, women, or victims of rape. And what can be done to prevent genocide. 
    Adama Dieng is a former UN Registrar of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Tutsi genocide of Rwanda. In 2012, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appointed him as UN Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide.
    This is a special spin-off episode of Cry Like a Boy hosted by Mame Peya Diaw and produced by Naira Davlashyan and Marta Rodriguez Martinez.

    The soldiers in Liberia: My voice was a weapon

    The soldiers in Liberia: My voice was a weapon

    Cecelia Danuweli realised she had the power to change the course of Liberia’s war in 2003. She joined a group of brave women who organised peaceful protests in front of the warlords. Their actions had a better range than bullets. Years later, this story was received with a standing ovation at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York as award-winning director Gini Reticker made this extraordinary rebellion of women into a film with the documentary Pray the Devil Back to Hell (2009).
    In this second part of the conversation, Reticker and Danuweli reflect on the impact of women's power to end war. 
    Hosted by Mame Peya Diaw in Nairobi, Kenya. With original reporting and editing by Carielle Doe in Monrovia, Liberia. Marta Rodriguez Martinez, Naira Davlashyan, Lillo Montalto Monella in Lyon. Lory Martinez in Paris, France and Clizia Sala in London, UK. Production Design by Studio Ochenta. Theme by Gabriel Dalmasso. Our editor-in-chief is Yasir Khan.

    The soldiers in Liberia: A woman's war

    The soldiers in Liberia: A woman's war

    Liberia witnessed a spiral of violence, hunger, and death for more than a decade. But women said enough was enough and united to try and end the war. They came together regardless of their origin, class, or religion.
    Cecelia Danuweli was one of these women who began by denying their husbands sex and started holding peaceful protests. She, like many other women, ended up redefining the front line of a brutal civil war. Award-winning director Gini Reticker traveled to Monrovia to tell the story of these women. In this episode of Cry Like a Boy, the pair reflect on what this peaceful revolution meant. 
    Hosted by Mame Peya Diaw in Nairobi, Kenya. With original reporting and editing by Carielle Doe in Monrovia, Liberia. Marta Rodriguez Martinez, Naira Davlashyan, Lillo Montalto Monella in Lyon. Lory Martinez in Paris, France and Clizia Sala in London, UK. Production Design by Studio Ochenta. Theme by Gabriel Dalmasso. Our editor-in-chief is Yasir Khan.
