by | Mar 7, 2015

I Write The Songs 57 – Female Songwriters – Theme: International women’s day – Human first – dedicated to our sisters, mothers, daughters and wives around the world; from me to my mum who, along with 6 other phenomenal women, created the Association Against Violence Against Women in Cameroon to fight the upsurge of violence against women (brought more to prominence by the 1991 happenings in their environment), of the attackers’ impunity, the people’s complicity, and the victims’ powerlessness. They are NDOME EKOTTO, Esther ENDALE, Elise Pierrette MEMONG MENO, NGOBO EKOTTO, SIKE BILLE, Dora ESSAKA DEIDO, Maria MOUEN KALLA LOBE.
