In West-Africa, a story is told from generation to generation. The story of the Women of Waalo, from the northwest of Senegal. It is an impressive story of resistance in which the women of this region massively said 'No'. This small word had a huge impact. A collective loss resulted in the rise of female leaders in a continent full of slavery.
