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


For daily inspiration and life lessons follow our new inspiring instagram page – @dearyoungnaijawoman

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!

    She now has to fend for herself and kids since the traditional man is no longer available: he has stopped hunting and farming, the barns and store houses are no longer filled with yams and bush meat; he no longer sees the need for bride price before sex, he wants to taste the soup before he even places an order. 😜

    The world has moved on but some people choose to stay behind, and also venture to drag the rest of us backwardly along with them. The African woman is still the same African woman but on a higher pedestal of consciousness, education, exposure, culture, and sophistication. No stereotype anymore for the African woman, and that is what most people don’t understand. That is what has really changed.

    She has gone to social media to learn from people who are not worthy of emulations,she went to media groups to get advice from mere mortals forgotten that ALL ANSWERS to life issues is embedded in the WORD OF GOD but she refused to search cos the eyes of her understanding are are enlightened,she went to Facebook group to complain and get advice from singles who are struggling to hook a man to wed them and also get advice from wedded women who only understands what a ring is but do not understand what marriage entails bcos she forgot to engage her mouth and knees in communicating with the PORTER WHO KNOWS THE POT AND HOW HE MOULDS IT WITH HIS CLAY through prayers ,but too bad that her coming back brought divorce and pain bcos she wants to be the head and neck at the same time in her marriage cos she is always dragging right with her man cos she is a career woman or CEO of a makeup/cake/hair vendor/cloths and shoe…..
    What a shame!!😭😭😭

    She is hustling trying to pay some of the bills since men don’t want to take sole responsibility of finances. Let her evolve and explore the world too. She is not here to be a servant.

    She’s hibernating until the time the man takes on the dominant status of being the provider and not a parasite

    She went to India! That’s where you find submissive women that cook, clean and keep house.
