What do you think of when you hear the word IKON? Do you think of a successful woman? A famous woman? A wealthy woman? Your mother? Your sister or your friend? Do you ever think to include yourself? Do you think you fit the description of an IKON? Because we do, which is why our March IKON is you. You, and every woman across Africa.

For YAZA, an IKON is a woman who is successful in her own right, who knows who she is and what she stands for and who uses her power for the greater good. And so our March IKON is you, and the women of Africa.

Throughout the month and in honour of International Women's Day we will be sharing 100 stories from 100 women. We have activists, writers, fashion designers, actors, entrepreneurs, influencers, lawyers, conservationists, schoolgirls and grandmothers. We have women from towns and villages from every part of Africa, each one proud to share their story and their dreams for future generations of Black women. 

These women are from different countries, backgrounds and professions but what binds YAZA, them and you together is the fact that we all fundamentally believe that when women support women great things happen. They say the future is female, we say the future is now. 

This is your time.
