Young Womanhood

Updated: Nov 8

Am I a woman? What makes a woman and when do we become her? “Young Womanhood” is a deep-dive into the under-acknowledged, under-explored transition to womanhood – as told by women from around the world and brought together by Yvette, a young Black woman living in Accra. Spanning themes of race, body, and sex, it is the coming-of-age story we do not get in popular or literary culture.
