Ms. Magazine, May 2023
I traveled to Ghana, West Africa, in March for a global leadership summit hosted by Northeastern University, where I work. While I had been to Accra multiple times, this was my first time being there during International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month. The timing had me thinking about how feminists are advancing gender justice in Ghana today.
I spoke with Nana Akosua Hanson, feminist activist, journalist and founder of Let’s Talk Consent to learn more about her vision for a feminist future, the importance of art and media, and her activism that is based in Ghana—but is having a truly global impact.
