The Dipo Ceremony is a ritual performed for Krobo women in Eastern Ghana. Dipo trains a young girl who has gone through puberty for her role as a woman, and celebrates this rite of passage through adornment of her body with traditional beads and jewellery. In this short documentary we explore and question sustaining this traditional ritual ceremony in Eastern Ghana today.
The Dipo Ceremony: From Girlhood to Womanhood is part of ‘Breaking the Cycle’, a visual document which explores globally, the rituals, cultural traditions and taboos around menstruation.
