I am a feminist scholar, researcher and activist and currently the Director of the Institute for Gender Research and Documentation (INGRADOC) at Fourah Bay College, University of Sierra Leone. I have over 15 years of experience teaching and researching gender, literature and peace-building and have published in those areas. My current research focus is in the areas of women’s political participation and quotas, violence against women and gender and security sector reform processes.
I am an executive member of the 50/50 Group, a non-partisan group that advocates for gender parity and women’s empowerment. I advocate for more women’s participation in decision making and for gender responsive policies and laws.
