“The Modern Woman” is the name of Wana Sambo’s latest collection and it features multimedia journalist and advocate Laila Johnson-Salami.
The modern woman is unapologetic about her beauty, her brains and her kick-ass personality, which all comes together to make her uniquely HER. The modern woman does not conform to the school of thought that says “she must not threaten the man.” A modern woman accepts that being a woman will probably be complicated and as a result, she doesn’t judge other women for their choices. In the pendulum of equality, women are constantly trying to find a balance between having a family/raising kids while working from home, working a 9 to 5 or being a CEO, etc. Because she understands these struggles are just like hers, she supports other women.
The Modern Woman is: Confident, Dynamic, Humane, Compassionate and Unstoppable, therefore we chose the face of this collection very carefully; Laila Johnson-Salami.
