Elevating And Empowering Women ?? Being woman in a predominately patriarchal world where male supremacy is reverenced is tough, add being black to that and the scale of mental and physical exhaustion reaches an all time high. Accomplishments are belittled, insecurity sets in.
UK based Nigerian Author, Speaker, Presenter Tola Onigbanjo is elevating, empowering and giving women a voice through her initiative – Women4Africa which had been dubbed the largest celebration of African women in Commonwealth by the Commonwealth Secretariat. This she believes is key to developing Africa.
The initiative was born in 2012 after years of being a hairdresser and hearing about some of the amazing achievements and selfless acts her clients shared. The mom of five teamed up with her husband and the rest is history.
