The Wider Image: Nigeria's female bouncers show their strength fighting stereotypes
Evelyn Ogolo, 27, a member of the female-only security team Dragon Squad Limited, stands guard in front of Mrs. Sadafy, the principal who hired them for close protection service, and her family at an event in Eket, Akwa Ibom, Nigeria, November 19, 2022. Founded in 2018, Emem Thomas, 37, only employs women of a certain weight and shape, creating a safe space for plus-size women to excel in a field that is traditionally male-dominated. "My team is all about plus-size ladies," she explained. "If you have the plus-size body then that is cool for me, before I now talk about your passion and other qualifications," she said.
