The Wider Image: Nigeria's female bouncers show their strength fighting stereotypes
Emem Thomas, 37, founder of the female-only security team Dragon Squad Limited, speaks on the phone as she makes security plans the night before an event, at her home in Uyo, Akwa Ibom, Nigeria, November 18, 2022. Founded in 2018, Thomas 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".
