Sheryl Sandberg

I got to know about the Book, “Lean In” by Sheryl Sandberg after reading Michelle Obama’s memoire “Becoming”. In it, Michelle alluded to the fact that it’s not always possible for women to “lean in”.

Covid-19 working mothers

Last week, I had a very good conversation with a mother on the implications of covid-19 on her family.

politics and life

One thing I find very interesting is political discussions. Now, I know some people may say politics is divisive and don’t like talking about it. In Nigeria, we say politics is too dirty.

Igbo women in society

Chimamanda Adichie was a keynote speaker at the 2018 Igbo conference where she gave a deep insight into Igbo women in precolonial Igbo culture. I found it very enlightening and interesting.
