An incandescent and inspiring memoir of resilience from a courageous young woman whose powerful advocacy brings to mind the presence, resolve, and moral authority of Amanda Gorman and Greta Thunberg. Toufah: The Woman Who Inspired an African #Metoo Movement

TOUFAH JALLOW is an African anti-rape activist who inspired a #MeToo movement in West Africa. A compelling and poised speaker, she has told her story to her nation on live television, as well as to reporters from the BBC, CBC, NPR, New York Times, Globe and Mail, Guardian, Al Jazeera and more. She has spoken before the United Nations, presented at the International Criminal Court at The Hague, and given testimony at The Gambia’s Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission. Jallow heads The Toufah Foundation in support of survivors of sexual assault in The Gambia. She lives in Toronto, where she is studying to become a sexual assault victim advocate.

Toufah will be joined in conversation with co-author, Kim Pittaway, the Executive Director of the MFA in Creative Nonfiction program at the University of King's College in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She is the former editor-in-chief of Chatelaine magazine, a recipient of the Outstanding Achievement Award from the Canadian Magazine Awards Foundation (And an 8-time NMAF finalist), and a finalist for the American Society of Journalists and Authors service writing award.
