Popular gay rights activist Bisi Alimi has a word of advice for women and according to him, they are not meant to be in the kitchen alone, but in the office making money.
Bisi lamented that most Nigerian women have relegated themselves into the kitchen and leaving the men to struggle for the jobs. This according to him is wrong and should be corrected.
He, however, charged them to rise and take up their rightful spots in the society, which is in the office
Dear Nigerian women, I am writing to you as an employer, pls be bold, be assertive. Apply for jobs, apply for training opportunities, put yourself out there. It is really sad to see that 99% of applications are from men and when women apply, they are mostly the best.
These men apply for jobs not because they are good, sometimes they don’t even know what they are applying for. They mostly apply for these jobs cos they are men and they can.
When women apply for job, most of the times, they do because they know for sure they can do the job and this is why it is sad.
This is what patriarchy does to your mentality, it screws it up. It curbs your progress, it stops you from moving forward,
Nigerian women, your place is in the office making money and not in the kitchen making dinner.
