Lola Omolola started the Female in Nigeria two years ago, her vision is to create a safe space for Nigerian women to talk about anything without societal judgement. The secret Facebook group has grown to have more than a million members sharing their stories and providing support to one another.
Lola Omolola was recently invited to meet with Facebook Founder in Chicago in recognition of the amazing work she does as an administrator of the group. Below is what Mark Zuckerberg said on Facebook about the meeting.
Over the past few weeks I’ve been meeting group admins across the country who are building meaningful communities on Facebook and will be at the summit. This photo is with Lola, who lives in Chicago and is originally from Nigeria. Two years ago, she founded a secret Facebook group called Female IN, or FIN. It’s a no-judgment space where more than a million women come to talk about everything from marriage and sex to health issues and work problems — and it’s helping end the culture of silence that exists for women in some parts of the world.
I’m looking forward to meeting more admins like Lola and talking about how we can help them do even more to build community. I’ll share more info on the summit as we get closer, and I’ll stream the event live from my profile later this month.
