About Iya Magazine

Iya is an online publication that showcases extraordinary stories of African women, to promote the culture, pride, and dignity of the African woman.

Iya takes its name from the Yoruba word for “mother” and tells unusual and fascinating stories about women – with a focus on African women. It publishes life stories of struggle, courage, and triumph of real women.

Iya uncovers the challenges met by these women, the ordeals they suffered, the odds they overcame, and the results they accomplished. 

Beyond telling stories that celebrate and inspire women, Iya is also committed to the practical development and transformation of every African woman and girl child.

This is why Iya caters to styles that defy laws, health, and fitness information that secures life, and other features that inform, educate and empower.
