This week's Monday Motivation comes from Nigerian, Finnish and Swedish writer, and speaker, Minna Salami. An activist and change agent, Mina is also the founder of the feminist blog, MsAfropolitan, which connects feminism with contemporary culture from an Africa-centred perspective.
In this talk TEDx Talk, Minna shares images of women from around the world, highlighting how out of touch the stereotypes are from reality. She tells powerful stories of her diverse grandmothers whose lives have shaped hers and of how images of African women in the West do not represent the experiences of her own friends and family. And how, very simply, African women like the same things as women everywhere.
