Africa as a continent has come a long way in making gender equality to be felt among people. The female gender in particular has a lot to be thankful for; women can now go to school without any form of discrimination and study whatever they want in most parts of the world; also women have ceased to be seen as properties and now get to be recognized as independent entities.
As helpless and weak as women are believed to be most times, they are actually very strong and because some men sense this, they run as far away as they can from them.
The past two decades have witnessed an increase in the number of women seeking power, equity, recognition and fairness in all places starting from the boardroom, to the households and even to religious places.
A Kenyan tweep shared how it’s easy for ladies to become feminists and netizens seem to agree. Here is how:
There was a time when feminism wasn’t as pronounced as it is today, and in those days, men ruled completely. However, with each passing day, the gospel of equality among both genders is spreading, and more women are jumping on the ship. Traditional men are not for feminism, so they see a woman who stands in support of equality for all genders as ‘undateable’ and ‘uncourtable’.
