“Women of Color: Does Representation Matter?”

· ABOUT ·
“She is Aïssa, she is 26 years old. She grew up in France and has a Senegalese and Guinean background. She has studied foreign applied languages, applied to international trade. She has been living in Germany for 2 years, and has also lived in Belgium and in Italy. She is currently working as a junior SEO manager in a marketing agency, having started her blog in February 2018 by only interviewing afro-descendant women”.
Aïssa had the idea for this event after thinking about her stay in Naples and her life in general, how stereotypes have an impact on her daily life; for instance, in the form of hypersexualiztion and fetishization”. Her blog aims to empower women of colour and increase awareness and representation. Women of color are regularly confined to a few seen examples in the media. For her, representation matters and needs to be improved because it has aspects that affect self-esteem and self-confidence. With low self-esteem and self-confidence, we limit ourselves.
