The winners are:

Oreofe and Titi Odeyinka.

We asked why it is important for Nigerian women to share their stories. And they both answered:

Oreofe said;

I think it is important that Nigerian women share their stories because of the awareness speaking about these experiences brings.
A case in point is how a number of people took to Twitter to talk about the harassment and unwarranted touching that women & girls experience in a number of big markets in Nigeria.
This seemingly small feat led to the birth of a powerful initiative called #MarketMarch. So far, #MarketMarch has touched Yaba market in Lagos and there have been positive changes experienced since the event.

Titi Odeyinke said;

I think it is important for Nigerian women to tell their stories because for so many years, we have been silenced, misrepresented and erased in history and I think it is high time we take charge and change this narrative and tell our stories so we’re not erased in the history books. I also think when women share their stories, it gives a feeling of belongingness to other Nigerian women, a form of sisterhood because you know that you are not alone in this struggle and it would inspire more women to keep pushing, to keep reaching for greater heights.

HEAR WORD! is produced by  iOpenEye, a Nigerian production company that utilizes performance art to challenge the status quo and inspire social change.
