Blessing Timidi Digha is a Black woman who identifies as a Feminist and who is also an Advocate, Storyteller and Community-Based Researcher who brings all of her intersections and ideologies to the work she does on Gender-Based Violence and Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights.  Blessing likes to kickstart very uncomfortable conversations on issues that concern, affect and impact girls and women. 

In this episode, Blessing discusses her willingness to have those uncomfortable but much-needed conversations about sex, money, and abuse… the overlap of physical, emotional, and financial abuse… reluctance to acknowledge or report abuse, especially among Black and Brown women… research learnings about financial abuse among immigrant women in Canada… the importance of women confiding in someone they can trust, seeking support, documenting all forms of abuse, and accessing available resources in their community… the danger women face when trying to report or leave their abuser… and why we must all “look out for the woman next to you.” (Canada and Nigeria)
