It is almost a taboo for an African woman to say she doesn’t like cooking or doing domestic chores.
Women who don’t like cooking are considered irresponsible, it doesn’t matter if they know how to cook and do cook, they are expected to LOVE doing it as well!
Vlogger, Ruby Suze, in this video, talks about what happens to the husbands of women who don’t like cooking or who can’t cook.
The fact that I cook or don’t cook, is that what defines me as a woman? Is that what defines me as a wife?
I actually do cook. It’s just that, it’s not my favourite thing to do. I don’t enjoy cooking and every time I say it, it looks like a massive sin.
Every social setting that I’ve been to and I utter these words, people look at me like I’m insane and it upsets me.
