Abaxoxi - the storytellers

5 EPISODES |  Podcast, ±46 min episode every 2 weeks, 2 days
History will attest that there is a growing recognition of the role of women in society as more women reach echelons previously unheard of and gain prominence in spaces they occupy. African women are no exception, bucking a trend of male dominance, etching indelible marks as leaders, visionaries, and game-changers. Stories of impressive African male leaders abound. It is less common to read of their female counterparts. The narrative of African leadership is distinctly male. Telling the story of Africa’s development (social, political, economic) is incomplete without recounting stories of African women. It is often lamented that Africans are guilty of not telling their own stories, while around us there are several opportunities for telling story. The tales told are often for the purposes of entertainment or of accounting what is going wrong. There is a dearth of locally generated content that accurately tracks progress and presents the information in a format that is entertaining, factual, as well as educational. The power of effective and impactful story is untapped.

Womanomics Africa ® has begun the curation of a podcast series titled “Abaxoxi – the storytellers”. Pronounced Ah-bah-kso-ksi, it is word derived from the from Zulu word “xoxa” meaning to chat. Its purpose is to unlock local, intercontinental, and intergenerational stories of women, profiling African women as thought leaders and change makers. It amplifies the storyteller and the work that they do, illuminating women shaping and creating legacies. Our aim is also to seek out new, relatively unknown voices, whose stories have not been widely heard or published in the public domain, but whose journeys have the potential to have profound impact.
