Women are rising to reclaim their powers, rise up to their full potentials, take charge, change narratives while also raising strong generations.
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!
Where did the traditional African woman go to, the woman who cooked, cleaned, took care of the house and was submissive???

We are still cooking, cleaning, taking care of the house, and are submissive. But that's like 10% of who we are.
We increasing our education, running organizations, raising young queens and kings, AND making legacies.
In fact that 10% is so easy, we delegate to others people. https://t.co/EwLZ79nzyM

There’s a little town now, it’s called self-worth, that’s where all the traditional women moved to. In this town, women don’t mind cooking and cleaning but the men do it with them too. https://t.co/HLfZL6eKO6

Her traditional father took her to school all the way to university and told her that she has more to offer the world than cooking, cleaning taking care of the house and being the African version of submissive. And her traditional mother concured! https://t.co/4bBu3mjhwa

They are still here, contributing, doing all that you Mentioned and more…but with a voice, because they have more abilities than to just cook and clean https://t.co/Adkv8k8uwj

Her children saw what pains and disrespect she went through with an absent husband who always belittled her efforts and decided they wouldn’t be like her.

She grew some balls because her backward, selfish, chauvinist husband who had none, was holding her back. She’s now a medical doctor, raising her kids single-handedly, and studying further whilst her former husband is still chasing skirts. Thank you, next.

She went to enjoy her life and leave the cooking and cleaning for someone who needs a job

She’s gone same direction the African man who loved, respect and took full responsibility for the family went to. A virtuous woman needs a virtuous Man to remain VIRTUOUS.

She is still in existence
She just learned not to accept oppression in the name of submission

The traditional African women waged wars
They were Female Kings
They were warriors
They were key players at home & in the field
But colonialism suppressed them & upheld men
Now those women are trying to trace their original heritage!
They are breaking new grounds!
They are here!

She had to start working, pay bills, protect her family; because the traditional African man, the provider, protector of his family left many moons ago.
