Pads and Periods - Breaking the Menstrual Taboo

Female sanitary pads, reproductive health, and menstruation in particular, is a topic deemed taboo in many African countries. Menstruation is often associated with uncleanliness and impurity, and there is little awareness about the importance of adequate sanitary facilities. What role does the language surrounding female sanitation play in stigmatizing women and their bodies? And what role does wider society play in directly or indirectly restricting the access women have to sanitary products?

The secret gay life of Nairobi

Denis Nzioka lives in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya. He is openly gay, has written a number of articles on LGBT and other human rights issues, and has more than 8000 followers on Twitter. In 2013 he was a candidate in the Kenyan presidential elections.

How is life as an openly gay man in Nairobi? How are the reactions from friends and family? Why is the situation so different from neighboring Uganda? And will the ongoing legal case to decriminalize homosexuality have a positive ruling?

Afrika Nå 30. mai: Niger Delta oil spills - who are responsible?

The successive oil spills in the Niger Delta in southern Nigeria over the last decades have destroyed the local fishery, the drinking water and the opportunity to cultivate land. But who is responsible? Is it solely the Nigerian government? What about oil companies operating in the area? The Norwegian pension fund has shares in Shell that is operating in the Delta - should they be held responsible? And what about the local groups sabotaging the oil infrastructure?
