In Cry Like Boy, we have spoken about the trauma caused by Liberia’s civil war. But conflict is a global issue. In this new episode, we ask Adama Dieng about the impact such a violent act as genocide can have on men, women, or victims of rape. And what can be done to prevent genocide. Adama Dieng is a former UN Registrar of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Tutsi genocide of Rwanda. In 2012, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appointed him as UN Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide.This is a special spin-off episode of Cry Like a Boy hosted by Mame Peya Diaw and produced by Naira Davlashyan and Marta Rodriguez Martinez.Musical theme: Gabriel Dalmasso.

Cecelia Danuweli realised she had the power to change the course of Liberia’s war in 2003. She joined a group of brave women who organised peaceful protests in front of the warlords. Their actions had a better range than bullets.Years later, this story was received with a standing ovation at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. Award-winning director Gini Reticker made this extraordinary rebellion of women into a film with the documentary Pray the Devil Back to Hell (2009).In this second part of the conversation, the two guests reflect on the impact of women's power to end war. Hosted by Mame Peya Diaw in Nairobi, Kenya.

Liberia witnessed a spiral of violence, hunger and death for more than a decade. But women said enough was enough and united to try and end the war. They came together regardless of their origin, class or religion.Cecelia Danuweli was one of these women who began by denying their husbands sex and started holding peaceful protests. She, like many other women, ended up redefining the front line of a brutal civil war. Award-winning director Gini Reticker travelled to Monrovia to tell the story of these women. In this episode of Cry Like a Boy, the pair reflect on what this peaceful revolution meant. Hosted by Mame Peya Diaw in Nairobi, Kenya.

After witnessing the murder of his parents and siblings, Morris Matadi was recruited as a child soldier. They put a rifle in his hands and forced him to fight in the Liberian civil war.One day he managed to put down his weapon and fled. But, like many other ex-combatants, the horror of war did not end there. He kept returning to the battlefield with vivid nightmares and experienced other symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), such as anger attacks. All this in a context where these warriors, who once lived by their own rules, became the black sheep of society once the war ended.In this episode, we rejoin Liberian journalist Carielle Doe to explore the war wounds that are invisible but take longer to heal. A wound that not only deeply scars the lives of ex-combatants, but of Liberian society, which today struggles to confront its past.With original reporting and editing by Carielle Doe in Monrovia, Liberia.

Jonathan is a Liberian man in his late forties. When we first met him in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia, Jonathan gave us the impression of being a laid-back guy. But his persona changed as soon as he started to talk about the war.  In this episode, we join Liberian journalist Carielle Doe to explore the memories of the country‘s civil war by following the life trajectory of this former soldier. A bloody battle in which masculinity was pushed to the extreme. And in which men like Jonathan had to always show strength, even when they feared death. But this is not just a story about Liberia. This is the story of the young men who picked up their rifles when they had nothing left. This is a story of what is expected of the men who go to war. With original reporting and editing by Carielle Doe in Monrovia, Liberia.

Thousands of adventurers die trying to cross the Mediterranean in search of a better life. But Mamadou survived. Yet, he considers his fate worse than death.

Across Southern Africa, thousands of men are abandoning stable education and employment and are instead seeking a fantasy fortune in South Africa's abandoned mines. The illegal miners, known as the zama zamas, not only put their lives at risk but also leave their families behind in countries like Lesotho and Zimbabwe for weeks if not months at a time. In this podcast episode, we explore how men's desire for status can be destructive for families and how future generations are impacted by growing up with absent fathers. We delve into the conversation with Mpiwa Mangwiro, an advocacy specialist for MenEngage Africa Alliance based in Johannesburg, and Rosalind Morris, an award-winning anthropologist who has launched a project devoted to the illegal miners in South Africa.This show has been produced by Khopotso Bodibe, in Johannesburg; Pascalinah Kabi in Maseru, Lesotho; Lillo Montalto Monella, Marta Rodríguez Martinez, Naira Davlashyan, Arwa Barkallah and Mame Peya Diaw in Lyon.

In this episode, we explore the unknown world of the zama zama, clandestine miners who are scavenging for gold in the world's deepest abandoned mines of South Africa. We sit down to talk with two guests: Mpiwa Mangwiro, who has explored the social consequences of the extractive industry in South Africa, and Rosalind Morris, an award-winning anthropologist who has launched a project devoted to the zama zama, featuring a documentary and several short films. Our guests touch upon the condition of the women of the zama zama - performing some of the most dangerous tasks - but also on the positive forms of masculinities that emerge from underground. Down there, as days and months go by seeking gold, men are discovering true bonds, friendships, and an enormous amount of creative energy. This show has been produced by Khopotso Bodibe, in Johannesburg; Pascalinah Khabi in Maseru, Lesotho; Lillo Montalto Monella, Marta Rodríguez Martinez, Naira Davlashyan, Arwa Barkallah and Mame Peya Diaw in Lyon. Special thanks go to Lory Martinez and Clizia Sala from Studio Ochenta.

There's an impoverished mountainous district of Lesotho where many illegal mineworkers live with their families. But women often wait there for their husbands for months and sometimes years. Many of the illegal mineworkers work in clandestine and abandoned mines in South Africa, run by criminal gangs. Some left to provide for their families, some die trying. In this second episode of our podcast series set in Lesotho, we talk about the fate of the people left behind by those men tasked by their families to provide, tasked to be breadwinners. But when the money runs out, they could even be rejected by their families. After all, what kind of a man are you if you can’t provide for your family? This hyper-masculinity, however, brings with it an aspect that could help men to heal from their wounds. Brotherhood. Some in Maseru, the capital of Lesotho, have decided to knock on the door of an ex-miner association, asking for help.In this episode, we used music by Lesotho artist Selimo Thabane.

How far are you willing to go to provide for your family? Would you put your life at risk to put bread on the table? What if you had no choice? There is a country in Africa where thousands of men have felt so much pressure to provide for their families that they are employed by criminal gangs as illegal miners, digging for gold in clandestine mines. In some cases, they will never see the light again. In this new episode of Cry Like a Boy, we visit Lesotho, where people who once were considered heroes are no longer regarded as men. However, many don’t know that European migrant miners experienced similar hardships and many still do.In this episode, we used extracts of the song ‘Marina’ by Rocco Granata, originally recorded in 1959. We also used music by Lesotho artist Selimo Thabane. You can check out his work at selimothabane.org and follow him on Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube as Selimo Thabane.With original reporting and editing by Pascalinah Kabi in Maseru, Lesotho; Lillo Montalto Monella, Marta Rodriguez Martinez, Naira Davlashyan, Peya Mame Diaw & Arwa Barkallah in Lyon, Lory Martinez in Paris, France, and Clizia Sala in London, UK.

A few decades ago, some Senegalese men openly identified themselves as not male or female, but as an alternative gender - the “Góor-jigéen” or “men-women”. Senegalese society accepted them, and they moved about freely in the streets of Dakar and other towns, dressed as women. Today, in those very same streets, men seen as behaving effeminately in any way are often harassed or attacked.Do any Senegalese still remember the time when this didn’t happen? Why did things change?In this episode, we investigate the colonial roots of homophobia in Senegal. To do this, we travel back in time to when Dakar was known as the “gay capital” of West Africa.Hosted by Danielle Olavario; with original reporting and editing by Marta Moreiras in Dakar, Senegal; Naira Davlashyan, Marta Rodríguez Martínez and Lillo Montalto Monella in Lyon, and Lory Martinez in Paris, France; Clizia Sala in London, United Kingdom.

Junior is a young Senegalese man who lives with a secret about who he is. He’s kept it from his family and even his childhood friends, because he’s afraid of not only rejection, but persecution, and even imprisonment. The secret is that Junior is gay.In this episode, Dakar-based journalist Marta Moreiras explores what it means to be gay in Senegal, where homosexual men here are targeted with the slur “Góor-jigéen” - a pejorative term which literally means “men-women” in the Wolof language, and is used to belittle their masculinity. Hosted by Danielle Olavario; with original reporting and editing by Marta Moreiras in Dakar, Senegal; Naira Davlashyan, Marta Rodríguez Martínez and Lillo Montalto Monella in Lyon, and Lory Martinez in Paris, France; Clizia Sala in London, United Kingdom.
