by David Reddick
I’ve been reading about (and drawing my version of) an amazing African woman, the powerfully outspoken Mekatilili wa Menza who protected herself & her people by defying & fighting against forced labor, oppression, over-taxation & British patriarchal colonial rule in Kenya in the 1900s. I think she is enormously relevant today. She’s a true example of a woman’s strength & empowerment for all of us.
