Power Is Her Art Form
Art is a medium for self-expression. It comes in different forms—songs, poetry, dance, graffiti, and more. To commemorate International Women’s Day, we want to showcase three women in MTV Shuga who used art to express social issues and their own emotions. It wasn’t easy, but they didn’t back down, and we respect them for that!
Sex—it’s complicated; especially when you have false information going about. Over the years, MTV Shuga has addressed sexual health misinformation through various storylines. This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #ChoosetoChallenge. We want our Shuga fam, especially women, to challenge misinformation on sex, seek professional guidance, and be empowered to make better decisions.
