https://twitter.com/obaa_boni/status/556881288326819841 Sexism is stealing Ghanaian women's orgasms in the following two ways. First, by attacking women for being sexual. Second, through a backward imagination of sex that causes your boyfriend to jam his penis into your unlubricated vagina repeatedly and overzealously, rabid rabbit style, until you begin quietly praying that this miserable experience masquerading as … Continue reading Shaming Women With “Ashawo” Won’t Make Your Dick Bigger
A personal interview for an African Feminist Project
Name is Adwoa, I am Ghanaian and I feast on the elixir of life: the souls of bigots. It nourishes me. Makes my hair thicker, skin sleeker, tongue sharper and pussy finer. I run the blog ghanafeminism.com and I’m a recent law school graduate. My only life goal is to reduce human suffering while maintaining personal happiness.
2. Who’s your favourite feminist?
My favorite feminist differs depending on how I feel on that day. Today it is former head of state of Burkina Faso, Thomas Sankara. Because Sankara did what no head of state has ever done, center women’s liberation as a foundational and necessary part of Burkina and equity.
3. What is your take on pornography?
I support sex work. And I acknowledge the unjust economic instituions, that take monopolize resources in ruling class men’s hands, such that their sexual…

Happy Mothers Day !!! While we love to celebrate and fawn over mothers on this day, we often ignore the institutional needs of mothers in Ghana. The difficulty and risk of motherhood is real.

Humanism without feminism is as useful as a typhoid inducing, clogged drainage system. It is logically and practically inconsistent. Ghanaian humanism houses male bigots who utilize intellectual gymnastics to fail to address their deep seated anti-woman beliefs and attitudes. A peril of sexism is that women are not taken seriously as intellectuals, or as pioneers … Continue reading Humanism Without Feminism: How Ghanaian Sexists Pose As Intellectuals

Just yesterday, I had to suffer through tweets saying women stay in abusive relationships because they enjoy sex with their abusive partners.
Of course I scoffed at this flawed reasoning. Funny enough, the whole conversation did not trigger anything until a few hours ago when I was reminiscing over events in Ghana with my sister.
My sister is one person I admire wholly. She is smart, beautiful, and brave. I will go out of my way to say she is my favourite feminist.
I learnt from her not to take crap from anyone (male or female but especially male) because I’m a girl. No sir, she will speak up and fight right back for justice.
Anyway, so I had decided to not get involved in this issue but during our conversation, she made mention of the night she dared my uncle to hit me again so she reported him to…
