Having worked in the London vegan scene for years, from restaurants to independently-owned coffee shops with a non-profit aim, Franscesca established vegan feminist bakery, The Female Glaze. In Franscesca’s experience, feminism and veganism share similar concerns around bodily autonomy, non-violence and the focus on building a supportive and educational communit. The Female Glaze is not only a business that is kind to animals, but it also promotes women’s empowerment from a sourcing, production and selling perspective. By providing delicious goodies with a social purpose, The Female Glaze hopes to help more people understand how food choices are political and important.

Cee Koko Books
Founded by Christian Kofi Agyapong, Cee Koko Books was created to break down the walls of vision and build strength in unity by helping readers to learn each other’s dialects. Agyapong’s parents are both Ghanaian, with his father from the Ashanti tribe speaking the Twi dialect, and his mother from the Ga tribe speaking the Ga dialect. Born in London, Agyapong understands both Ghananian dialects however, does not speak them fluently. Cee Koko Books helps readers to teach one another the mother tongue, and encourages families that speak an African dialect at home to teach family members to read, learn and respond confidently in their native dialect. Non-speaking families, or those wanting to learn, are encouraged to start their journey into learning African languages too with Cee Koko Books.
