Adelle Onyango, through her initiative, has unveiled a podcast series titled PursePective. As the name suggests, the podcast is a space where women can talk about their experiences as they relate to gender equality, and men can objectively respond with their perspective.
PursePective will be a podcast to drive gender equality, women empowerment and inclusion. During each show, Adelle Onyango and a panel of three guests will tackle different ways in which we can all promote a more equitable society.
“The narrative of the podcast is based on the premise that in the patriarchal nature of society, men have a privileged hand and many times do not even realise it,” Adelle noted.
“The aim of this podcast is to bring this to light, highlighting for men the privilege they may take for granted,” she added.
“The podcast is a platform to not just tell the African woman’s story but to get men to understand what it takes to be the modern African woman and the social intricacies involved.” Adelle further explained, “The podcast is based on the understanding that women are not the problem; the obstacle and hindrance to gender equality and sexual abuse, is not fellow women; and that if men know and do what’s right, we live in a society as equals. The podcast is really for men.”
On Tuesday June 25th, PursePective will premiere at a two-hour live viewing which will be held at K1 Klub house. The viewing will feature a 60-minute panel discussion followed by a 60-minute Q&A between the guests and the show’s panel members.
The premiere and all future episodes of PursePective will be posted on Adelle’s social media channels in both podcast and video form, where she will encourage women to watch or listen with a man or with men.
