Standard

Yaaya:
In your words, define a ‘new African woman’.
Belinda O:
That’s hard. You know why?
Yaaya:
Why?
Belinda O:
You cannot box the African woman up. There is no one definition to the African woman. We are women from different walks of life. You could say that the new African woman is the African woman who refuses to stay down; who is finally saying “enough, I’m here and I’m going to tell my story, on my own terms. I have my own voice.”
The new African woman is a change agent. The new African woman knows herself and does not feel the need to define herself through the eyes of others.
