Female friendships weave essential bonds in the fabric of our lives, becoming pillars of support for Ameni and Emna at the dawn of their thirties. These relationships, true safe spaces, foster personal growth and healing, and are the cradle of authentic exchanges.

Their journey through the years has also revealed the crucial importance of sorority. Shaped by shared experiences and mutual support, these friendships have exceeded all initial expectations. From the first encounters at school, through the challenges of teenage years and the beginnings at university, Ameni and Emna's perception of friendships among women has deeply evolved.

In this episode, they revisit these connections from a different angle, measuring the depth and richness they bring to their existence. What started as a quest for individual identity beyond gender stereotypes has transformed into a solid support system, highlighting the unique strength of female connection.

In this third episode of "Andek Swi3a?" (Got a Moment?), they explore the lessons learned from their female friendships: resilience, empathy, and solidarity.

"Do you have a moment? We reflect together and explore our simple, deep, similar, and different questions... We dive for almost an hour into our thoughts and feelings out loud... We may not necessarily have answers, yet why hesitate to express ourselves? "Andek Swi3a?" (Got a moment?) is a podcast where Ameni and Emna discuss, and each episode addresses a topic that could resonate with many women of their generation: Generation Y.

Inkyfada Podcast is the first platform entirely dedicated to original Tunisian podcasts, and was conceived by Inkyfada media in collaboration with the in-house research and development laboratory, InkyLab.
Inkyfada joined the global podcast boom in 2017, when the team produced the first Tunisian audio documentary, diving deep into the belly of the El Kamour struggle taking place in the desert.
Since then, Inkyfada Podcast has produced a wide variety of documentaries, investigations, and podcast series, as well as articles accompanied by music; covering a multitude of contemporary issues in order to offer an immersive and alternative podcast experience.
Whilst exclusively offering audio content, the Inkyfada Podcast team upholds the same core values and principles of inkyfada.com, and is committed to producing high quality content though a dynamic and meticulous production process.
In addition to the permanent team, Inkyfada podcast works closely with various journalists, artists, illustrators, musicians and other content creators in order to diversify the platform and support artistic creativity.
These podcasts differ from traditional radiophonic content in that the applied production and editing process is more akin to cinematographic techniques, in addition to being web-based, downloadable and accessible on demand.
Additionally, Inkyfada Podcast uniquely offers subtitles in French, Arabic and English for all audio content, the majority of which is recorded in Tunisian or in the preferred language of the speaker in question.
