Nigerian Women Answer The Question “Where Did The Traditional Submissive African Woman Go To?”

Women are rising to reclaim their powers, rise up to their full potentials, take charge, change narratives while also raising strong generations.

We are surprised that when the African woman is being talked about, some men only want her to be submissive and  only useful in the home. But come to think of it, history talked about the roles of women in politics. How women went to war and beat their enemies to the ground, how they staged protests, challenged wicked authorities, brought about change, were actively in government and even governed.

We couldn’t be more glad when some Nigerian women schooled a young man who asked where the submissive African woman went to.

According to many of them, we are still here but we are challenging stereotypes, we are breaking boundaries, we are owning and rewriting our stories!
