Hauwa’s Thoughts

“I would love to see more women being recognized for their excellent work, their excellent writing. So that the question “why aren’t there enough women writers?” begins to sound as untrue as it truly is. Because there ARE enough of us, people just aren’t paying enough attention because of unconscious bias.”

Hauwa Shaffii Nuhu is a poet and essayist from Nigeria whose work has appeared on Popula, African Arguments, The Republic, Ake Review and elsewhere.
