section of this gender based violence and feminists and in northern nigeria welcome to the africa pleasure is so excited to have you here so i actually want to talk about the fact that for the last few months or really is actually you've been studying literature and in fact we have again or some of the books here what has surprised you most well it's something that not just something i grew up with some to know grew up with my father was a researcher in this is actually the researcher so of course the interest was natural for me about this book and something i've been reading right so i think maybe this a presenter for me is not in the book actually is a dollar doesn't know much about it it's here you can pick it up or read it there's a hole in source in london contin in his books but a lot of people don't read words i think does the most surprise when there were talk about how so much literature in the house of people. do you know exist of course that it has been exists so talk to us about some of the authors and or the
writers and some of the explored in the books or it's it's been a long history of how's the ratings from the benton so with the does the romans the right in which has been the most popular at and currently it's started in the late ninety's it is after the ninety's with the bomb of the economy literature mostly the 3 most you can see is romance so it's called romance novels in the directors don't want that title to be used and most of dogs don't must to medical condition of course is the romance but it brings up what oddest sections of the society order to make to go around especially what i'm interested in is the famine is the old view of this woman you don't know. doing it didn't i didn't feel as famous because most of this writing is about a writer to empower women and that's why the society you know them and you sometimes try to shun trade to bundy's because there's been a lot of book one incident in the past years because the books don't conform to the norms of the society sometimes speaking about conforming to the normal society something that that you are here to tell us is that these books cover what you call
that culture so to say. you say that that's something that's in these novels that go back as far as the 1930 s. the leverage in that form and the romance novels which i've been studies always trying to write about how so women writers are different or be on what i phone maybe a dozen of us of present and is some of the books of talking about the culture in northern then you know which is something that has been happening we've had a lot of what we called the. men who dress us female which we say do so because we didn't know what to do with homosexuals or not but i didn't buy those as i was young but do or dismiss that identified themselves as kind of things that explode which the society tries to show it from that distance and so what i was interested open was to look at these books and see which of these books explored distance and what was their actions of course there was a little but and the 2000 i can imagine are some of the books we have to to learn which surprise surprise increase the readership of the book because people are
interested to hear what's happening was in this book so that i mean you're obviously now bringing this to light yet again and i just wondered how that's been received because you come from a part of the world that massively conservative how do people react when you say to them actually this has been happening i think conservative is conservative in that way because learning from the obvious looks conservative but this is the literature as well as a mirror of this is a to so it's not something that he did something that's happened and maybe you don't want to talk about and we don't want to relate with it we prefer the distance of the it which you know it's happening but let's not bring it out in the open for me even that there. we know it's happening but don't you think just pray do more of it by bringing it out in the open but just begin it out in the open and we need to talk about a minute or infrared she. said. thank you pleasure. in sierra leone soldiers have found a novel way to tackle post-traumatic stress disorder in a country still shaped by
a traumatic civil war and the bowler soldiers are training in yoga to put the past behind them. creates problems for your. people why do you do. yoga mats. people in sports kit and a charismatic instructor but this is no ordinary yoga class these are sierra leonean soldiers and they're confronting a dark past. i still get i'm still traumatized but i am now able to control it because of how you're going to transform me when i'm in a new person sierra leonean society bears deep scars civil war raged in the 1990 s. and 2000 rebel groups recruited young children as fighters in 2014 struck thousands lost their lives or their loved ones the mental wounds linger on.
