A Look At Shirley Frimpong Manso's "V Republic" Series

It stars Joselyn Dumas, Christabel Ekeh, Nikki Samonas and Jasmine Baroudi and is available to view on a pay-per-view basis on the inhouse online streaming channel, Sparrow Station.

V Republic is the latest production from Sparrow Productions that revolves around the lives of four ambitious and successful women. Right?

But it is hard to figure out what the V stands for if you can see where I am going with this… Vagina, virginity, vanity, virtue; perhaps? No? Well, I get the whole women empowerment and feminist movement that of late Africa is seemingly embarking on, but are we really ready as a society to challenge this status-quo?

There is an ongoing debate about women being able to freely express themselves as sexual beings in the way that men do. But the bigger question is that can we achieve equality in that area with men? Here in V Republic I think Shirley raises those questions and tries to answer them.

May be women should own their bodies, minds and souls. But in this “owning of mind, body and soul” will that affect the social balance of things? This is a compelling series and very challenging for very conservative minds so do take in a deep breath before you dive in. V Republic will definitely leave you gasping for air.
