Yo, dude! ‘Modou Taxi’ on his pink Schwinn bicycle. When I saw this bike, I had a sudden pang of nostalgia. I used to have the same make of bicycle when we lived in New York City. Except mine was purple, and called ‘Isabella’, and it had a Miss Marple-esque basket on the front.

International Women’s Day 2021

International Women’s Day 2021 – in honor, and respect, of strong women, around the world.

Released today, on #IWD2021 ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’.

In this 25-minute documentary, The Toufah Foundation offers an analysis of the Gambian Truth Commission’s (TRRC) proceedings in regard to sexual and gender-based violence. Using footage from the hearings, Toufah Jallow questions the predominant attitude towards women stories, who most of the time remain unacknowledged or doubted. Parallels are made with other contexts where powerful men raped young women in total impunity for many years, such as Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein and El Chapo, the Mexican drug lord.
