When Nnenna and Jemmy ride their motorcycles through the busy streets of the megacity of Lagos in Nigeria, people sometimes stare at their chests to make sure they are really women. Indeed they are! Together with the other ladies of the Female Biker Initiative ( F.B.I.) they are busy changing the gender roles in their country by being the inspiration they are and by using the attention they get very well: partnering with health organisations they raise awareness on cervical cancer and organise free screenings for women. Cervical cancer kills one woman every hour in Nigeria.
