We are celebrating sisterhood – women who choose to nurture friendship and build wholesome and rewarding relationships.
We ask three women the wonderful thing Sisterhood has done for them:
“Sisterhood saved me. I was going through a separation from a relationship that took ten years of my life. I was depressed and didn’t think I had much to live for. My friends came together and built this safe nest for me where we spoke every day, we prayed together and they took me out of town to feel new again. If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t have survived that phase of my life.” – Ebube
“I am 50 years old, and there’s so much I am learning from my younger relatives. They seem to have more wholesome friendships than we did. It is a beautiful paradox because they still prioritise personal needs. During my time, women compete, gossip wickedly and fight over ownership of men. But these days, these young women are prioritizing friendship and spending more time building sisterhood. I think they are wise. They have more fruitful relationships and lasting bond. I am learning.” – Rhoda Abiola
“Sisterhood is that space where I can be vulnerable without fear or shame. When we come together, there are no judgments. My friends are my safe space – they are my sisters. I went through a hoe phase because I was so confused about many things. My two close friends didn’t judge me. It was easy to come out of that phase and fix myself because these amazing women didn’t look at me like a failure. They were the shoulders I needed at a desperate hour. I won’t trade this sisterhood for anything!” – Chinasa Eze
