The problem with ‘African Woman’ magazine

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Health, Media & Journalism, Women & Gender

Uganda's Scarlett Lion comments [1] on an article titled “From fistula to fab” in the magazine African Woman, a fashion makeover of a woman who was recovering from a fistula [2]. She says: “From Fistula to Fab! trivializes a very serious problem without offering meaningful commentary or insight into things like medical advances, or people who are working to stop discrimination or incidence, or the voices of survivors themselves.”
