There are many women that have taken leadership roles in male-dominated fields and defied all odds, making the way easier for those behind them. Popular among such women in Africa is Taiwo Ajai- Lycett.
Born in 1941, on February 3, Taiwo was the first woman to be the editor of Africa Woman Magazine in the 1970s. She accomplished this after working her way tediously to the top from waitressing and secretarial jobs and acting jobs.
As an actress, some of her famous works are Tinsel, Parcel Post by Yemi Ajibade, Dazzling Mirage, Oloibiri, and The Refusal (1973). Below, is a critical look at her educational background.
She had her first cycle education at Mt. Carmel Covent School, Lagos. Next, she went to Methodist Girls’ High School for her secondary education. She later proceeded to the Christine Shaw School of Beauty Science, Hendon College of Technology in London, and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
