Power Issue of New African Woman magazine tackles Issues in Africa

 My fav author and activist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is the cover of the new Power Issue of the New African Woman magazine. This issue is very interesting as it covers many issues facing women around Africa, including land ownership, politics and even fashion.
 This article got my attention,mostly because I am Tanzanian and also because I have heard of this issue for years now. In the magazine, they wrote ,"The “same-sex” stories from some remote parts of Tanzania where widows are forced to marry young girls to secure or gain rights to land for example, are a true reflection of how Power fails people, more so women and girls.
“How can this still be happening in a country that has one of the so-called most progressive presidents in Africa?” asks a flabbergasted New African Woman Editor reGina Jane Jere as she calls on authorities to look into and change these women’s plight."
 And in fashion,the cry for an equal opportunity for black models and designers in the international runway,continues...
Ooooh...we celebrate that Afro as well!
