Deconstructing Patriarchal Theology by Pastor Mente

  Manhood has been a subject of discussion in recent times.  With the emergence of Feminism, boys or men have become even more conscious about what being a man means.   I remember growing up, young and ignorant, masculinity boiled down to sexuality and there was no debate about it. I later learnt that for … Continue reading Deconstructing Patriarchal Theology by Pastor Mente

What I Wish Women Understood About Men by Landry Subira

Perhaps it’s the manner in which my mind works that I feel any blanket statement is a dangerous one. I’m not really able to speak for all men about all men. I am speaking on what I know, which is what I’ve seen in the last 30 years.   In my view, in general, there … Continue reading What I Wish Women Understood About Men by Landry Subira

For Better Or Worse, I Choose Me by Sbongile Lugube

On behalf of happily single Black African Women everywhere:   How many times have you heard it? Or a version of it anyway: “No man will marry a woman like that!” How about, “The way to man’s heart is through his stomach!” And of course the stamp of approval: “Now that’s wife material!”   Is … Continue reading For Better Or Worse, I Choose Me by Sbongile Lugube

What Running Has Taught Me About Life by Sarah Nyengerai

  My running ‘learning journey’ started more than four years ago. I call it a learning journey because I have learnt and gained a lot from this hobby/experience. It was in 2014, as I was getting ready for a Victoria Falls 7.5km fun run, that I confidently declared that I would never join a running … Continue reading What Running Has Taught Me About Life by Sarah Nyengerai

You’re Not The Only One by Larissa Subira

  Growing up, I had no real concept of what depression or any kind of mental disorder was. I began having some understanding when I started to have panic attacks when I was 18 and in my final year of high school. These episodes were periodic, mainly around exam time.   I would have episodes … Continue reading You’re Not The Only One by Larissa Subira

Your Mess Is A Message

I spoke recently at a week of prayer targeted at young women and shared about purpose. God placed it on my heart to share about how there are many people (not just women) who have disqualified themselves from living a purposeful life for one of two main reasons.   They believe that they have made … Continue reading Your Mess Is A Message

Things I Wish Black African Queens Would Realize – Open Letter From A Black African King

  Dear black African Queen, Do you get that many civilisations are born through you and because of you? It may come to others as though I am being biased because I am black and have been raised by you, a black woman. If you look around, however, Nubian Queen, you’ll notice, many other races … Continue reading Things I Wish Black African Queens Would Realize – Open Letter From A Black African King

17 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me When I Turned 21

  Towards the end of last year, my aunt asked me to help her put together some advice/words of encouragement for a young lady who was turning 21 years old.

Women’s Day Post: In Conversation with Tsitsi Dangarembga

    This Women's Month, my team and I really wanted to celebrate black African women (bAw) each day on our social media pages.

To be able to capture … Continue reading Women’s Day Post: In Conversation with Tsitsi Dangarembga
