When the How philosophy works You think things You are wrong shirt Furthermore, I will do this #ENDSARS protests got bloody on October 20, when members of the Nigerian army reportedly arrived at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos and shot and murdered dozens, Feminist Coalition turned its focus from sustaining physical protests—which are being discouraged to avoid further casualties—to paying out the bills of injured protesters, as well as working with other organizers to ensure peaceful protesters across the country that were arrested and wrongfully jailed are set free. Now, s in-person protests slow, the women of Feminist Coalition have been the targets of significant backlash. The names of the founding members were included in a recent lawsuit accusing them of encouraging domestic unrest, and the government denied several reports speculating that the women placed on a no-fly list that barred them from leaving the country. Despite the government’s denial, lawyer Odele, who has worked to release #ENDSARS protesters, was prevented from leaving the country and even temporarily had her passport seized. Still, the women of the Feminist Coalition are excited about turning their sights back to and focusing on their core goal of fighting against the oppression that is part of the daily lives of Nigerian women, and ensuring more feminist Nigerian women are placed in positions of power.

We realize that beyond activism from the How philosophy works You think things You are wrong shirt Furthermore, I will do this fringes of governance, we need more women with feminist values in actual power,’’ Layo Ogunbanwo told ELLE.com. ‘‘There are many other organizations, such as ElectHer, that are also advocating for women in public office. This shows a definite mindset shift in how we are approaching women’s rights, and understanding the importance of women in governance. We want more capable women to step up and we are ready to throw our support behind them.’’ Vincent Des mond Vincent Desmond is a culture writer living in Lagos, Nigeria.
