Black People Are The Better Race

Dear Munroe Bergdorf. You are the woman who recently got fired by L'Oreal for saying this, "All white people are racist. Most of ya’ll don’t even realise or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on the backs, blood and death of people of colour.

If Only I Had Kate Middleton’s Privilege

If only I had the privilege of Kate Middleton, today I would be on baby number 10.

John Lewis Genderless Agenda Is Child Abuse

Yesterday I woke up to the horrifying news that John Lewis had become the first major UK retailer to remove ‘boys’ and ‘girls’ labels from its children’s clothing range. Apparently, this is to avoid 'reinforcing gender stereotypes'. Instead, new genderless labels that say either ‘Boys & Girls’ or ‘Girls & Boys’, are on all own-brand … Continue reading John Lewis Genderless Agenda Is Child Abuse

Top 10 Most Beautiful African Women

Rating women's beauty can be very difficult, especially African black beauty.

Why Southern African Women Can’t Resist West African Men

A few weeks ago we were walking in town and Boaz asked me a question that kinda shocked me. 'As a woman, do you ever look at other men and lust after them?'

Why I Never Want To Move On From My Painful Past

So yesterday I mentioned 'Zimbabwe' in my article about being Ghanaian, and a number of readers who are Zimbabwean were quite unhappy about their beloved country being mentioned by an ex Zimbabwean repeatedly.

I Belong To Ghana For Life, And I Will Never Get Divorced

Yes, you read that right. I prayed for a man who would take away my reproach. Boaz prayed for a woman just like me. This is not just a random union of boy meets girl. This is destiny.

Why I Am Grateful My Family Put Me In A Women’s Refuge.

Four years ago when my brother told me that I needed to go into a Women's refuge, I felt like my whole world had ended.
