The Wider Image: Nigeria's female bouncers show their strength fighting stereotypes
Peace Vigorous, 23, the youngest member of the female-only security team Dragon Squad Limited, stands with her sister, Joy Ekwere, in her P.O.S. (point of sale) kiosk in Uyo, Akwa Ibom, Nigeria, November 21, 2022. The Dragon Squad's 43 recruits have worked security at about 2,000 events including house parties, funerals, political rallies and club nights. "People expect us to be in the kitchen or probably doing make-up and other feminine roles, but joining this squad has really enlightened me," said Peace.
