I am worried about a society that is deeply rooted in patriarchalism. Why would a man share publicly pictures of his estranged lover in the nude? Why would a woman be stripped naked for committing a crime? Why does our societal disposition negate the principle of gender equality? Why does our masculine orientation scorn women so much?
It is because they are WOMEN. That is the premise upon which gender stereotype is formed. We live in a society where men think that women should have no privacy; where men believe that women’s role should only be matrimonial; and where patriarchal mentality has become recalcitrant. This thinking is worse than cancer; it kills women values at a lick.
I submit to equality of men and women. What is good for the goose is equally good for the gander. Before you judge a woman, think about the choices you have never had to make because you are a man.
I am a Nigerian, a trained economist at the University of Sussex, and a development aficionado with keen interest in gender equality. As a prolific writer, my works on fiction, non-fiction and poetry have been published online on various websites. My essays have won various online publication contests. I maintain a personal blog at www.brutusgarley.blogspot.com, where I write on spectrum of issues.
