Funmi Iyanda covers Guardian Life magazine’s latest issue.
The veteran talk show host, broadcaster, journalist, culture figure and CEO of OYA Media talks to the magazine about patriarchy, misogyny, feminism, motherhood, sexuality and more.
Funmi Iyanda says:
We say we like powerful women but we don’t because we’ve been conditioned to accept that power is a masculine thing and that there’s limited power scope for women. One of the ills of patriarchy is that women have been forced for centuries to negotiate power and personhood by stealth and manipulation so a woman in full unapologetic feminine power often reads like a threat to both men and women.
