‘Can you sue President Barack Obama for me?’ After being targeted by a coordi-nated campaign of threats and media harassment, Ewurabena was forced to flee Ghana with her young family. But the last thing she expected was for President Obama to endorse the journalist behind it all.
In this captivating memoir, the first instalment of Hague Girls, Ewurabena sets out her side of the story. She charts the early course of her career as a human rights lawyer, from her student days in Minnesota to her role as the founder of a well-respected human rights organisation. With her characteristic insight and composure, she explains how the campaign against her unfolded, and in so doing explores the abuse of power and privilege in Ghana and beyond.
But she also finds warmth and humour amongst the heartache. Through it all, she shows how the unwavering support of friends and family, relaxing oxygen facials – plus a good, full-bodied red wine – make it possible to weather even the toughest of storm.
