Women In African History - Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti by UNESCO

A short history of the life of one of the incredible women highlighted in UNESCO's Women in African History series. Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti was a leading activist during Nigerian women's anti-colonial struggles. Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti (1900-1978) was a leading activist during Nigerian women's anti-colonial struggles. She founded the Abeokuta Women's Union, one of the most impressive women's organizations of the twentieth century (with a membership estimated to have reached up to 20,000 women), which fought to protect and further the rights of women. The story of Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti is told through comic strip illustrations by Alaba Onajin a Graphic Designer for novels currently living in Ondo state, Nigeria.
