You’re able to read this, but half a billion women and girls can’t. Roughly 130 million girls were prevented from going to school today, 1,000 will be infected by HIV today, and 144 girls will die as a result of violence. Just today. And every day after that. We must change this reality. That’s why @ONE‘s #PovertyIsSexist campaign is so dear to my heart. Check out my guest column for @Refinery29: http://bit.ly/danaidotg #DayoftheGirl #LoveOurGirls
Nothing says "chilled out" like a kaftan shirt. Go for one with beautiful, bright tribal prints to give your outfit a lift and truly celebrate our beautiful heritage.
Hair is one of the best ways we as Africans express ourselves. One of the favourites, and easy to do style, is the always in fashion Bantu knots. Iconic, simple and edgy—winning!
