In this workshop, Medad will be dealing with the deep rooted lies that have been planted and nurtured in the minds of many people in the African society for many generations that have led to the dehumanization of the female nature of being. Generational lies such as female genital mutilation, bride price, patriarchy, widow cleansing, widow inheritance, gender taboos, weaker sex ideology, male headship, submissiveness, property inheritance, polygamy, barrenness, single sex female philosophy, beast of burden ideology, promotion ideology, original sin legends, blame ideology, and other ideas that have brought injustice to women in Africa will be unearthed and how these ideas have had disastrous consequences on the African society and how they have affected African development. This workshop will suggest ways to demolish these disastrous ideas and how to promote justice in the African communities.
