#IWD2018 African Blogger, Redefines Masculinity To Mark International Women Day

There has been a revamp in the idea of masculinity even on a Women Day, thanks to Male Empowerment Blogger Jenny Chisom. In celebrating Womanhood, Chisom released a digital format of her 12-sets of affirmations for men called “Men Code Redefined” in a downloadable form as her contribution to the theme #PressForProgress for Womens’ Day.

The astute blogger and passionate bloggers-community organiser, Chisom who has been blogging for 9 years started focusing her blog on Male Empowerment in late 2016
and has become popular for striking a balance on the gender equality discourse. According to her, women empowerment cannot be achieved by continually forgetting that males are not empowered from birth but must be given capacity from parenting to adulthood. This she said is the best way to have whole men and also reduce the spate of violence against women and girls.
In her Men Code recording freely downloadable on all her platforms via @jennychisomblog (IG/Twitter/Facebook/Youtube) she explored man’s connection to his maker, men raising families of dignity, men speaking their own truths, men having a healthy self-esteem , being emotionally mature, amongst others.
She explains that the 12 affirmations is the basis of her Male empowerment ideology.
Bloggers across Africa like Jenny Chisom are making great impact with their platforms and we can only ask for even more of them.
Happy International Womens’ day!

Atiku Shares Deep Lessons From Black Panther

Over the weekend, I joined my children to watch the much talked about ‘Black Panther’. It was a good film, and I was happy they took me to see it. However, I came out of the movie theatre a little upset. When the first scenes came up, and I saw “Sambisa Forest” I was unhappy that the only reference the film makers could have for Nigeria was a negative one, but I was later encouraged by the thought of Africans solving African problems. That is a good thing, the kinds of things we used to do. For young people who may not remember, Nigerian civil servants and indeed most able citizens used to contribute money every month to support the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa. Nigeria was the single stabilizing force across West Africa. Helping to restore peace in Liberia and Sierra Leone are examples of the gigantic status we once had.

It was an atmosphere filled with calmness but you could also hear the joy and excitement in the voices of the over 100 people who came through the exhibition doors.
