    Have you ever heard of the “angry black woman”? It’s a stereotype that portrays black women as naturally angry, ill-tempered, and sassy. In many cases, the stereotype is used to describe women who are bold and assertive. This episode features two women -- Nelisa and Janice. They tell us about being labeled “angry” and “mean” for being assertive and confident in course of doing their work. We also learn the many tricks both women use to cope with being stereotyped for simply doing their jobs.

    But...you're religious

    But...you're religious

    In conservative and/or religious African societies, many people find feminism controversial. Some religious scriptures have verses that ratify gender roles and imply that men and women are not equal. As a result, some people believe that feminism is incompatible with religion.

    In this episode, we speak to two Nigerian women who are religious and feminist, and we explore how they were able to reconcile these two seemingly opposite ideologies.
