Me, My Sex and I: Diary of an Afropean Feminist

In this literary memoir, Axelle Jah Nijké tells her story as an Afropean, daughter, woman-turned-mother, having suffered from sexual and educational abuse in her childhood. By reclaiming her family’s story, Axelle confronts the stereotypes and demands that are still put on women to this day. This memoir also tells the story of an awakening, a journey to empowerment through literature and sexuality, where intimacy meets politics. A powerful narrative that will count as one of the greatest feminist intimate stories of our times.
