I recently finished writing an article on women in Somali history, which had me thinking a lot about how Somali women are often erased from the historical record. Many of you are aware that today is the anniversary of the founding of the Somali Youth League in 1943, the first Somali anti-colonial nationalist organization which spearheaded the nationalist movement (primarily) in southern Somalia and formed the first two civilian governments after independence. We tend to remember the men behind these movements, but women were just as instrumental in the struggle for Somali freedom and independence.
So on this SYL day, here are the names of just a few of the prominent female activists of the Somali Youth League:
RAHA AYANLE - co-chair of the women's section of the SYL
HALIMO GODANE - co-chair of the women's section of the SYL and the first Somali woman to run for political office in 1958
TIMIRO UKASH (she gave birth in prison!)
