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, collects her bag as she boards a boat towards Calabar, Crossriver, Nigeria, November 17, 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".
