My words to share with others
Depend on no-one but yourself.
My proudest achievement
On a personal level: my four beautiful children - two sons and two daughters. On a professional level: TV documentary series on Africa’s history - told by Africans themselves based on a unique project undertaken by UNESCO at the behest of newly independent African leaders.
My thoughts on feminism and women’s suffrage
The ideology and belief system on which male dominance is based has proved to be profoundly and deeply unshakeable in so many ways and all over the world: from a woman taking her husband’s name and children assuming the father’s name to more egregious manifestations of male dominance like GBV, and institutionalised discrimination against women as well as deeply harmful cultural and social practices.
