Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in

Prior to colonisation, African women wore traditional headgear or wrap to indicate their marital status and social standing.

Globalblackhistory.com writes that in traditional African culture, women have always covered their hair.

However, when the colonialists came to Africa they neither respected African traditions or valued them and banned traditional African headgear for women.

As a result, headgear in a work setting in some parts of Africa became associated to maids and nannies.
