Ayanda, couldn't agree with you more.
In the context of this article, unfortunately, that is the case in many societies.
It's interesting how the word rape is even a taboo to say in many African households. No one will tell you to rape anyone, but the acts that lead up to it is perpetuated. In fact, many people, including myself, live our lives "protecting" ourselves from rape. How sad.
Thank you! We can go so many ways with this topic but the fact is our African households don't even allow us to have these type of conversations. I think since we all know better now, let's do better. Call it out when our brothers and male friends are promoting such behaviours. It will be the beginning of a society where a woman is not afraid to walk by a group of men...
This right here is THE truth! Parents definitely have a pivotal role to play in the issues we have in our society.
Thanks for your response Pearl. For the most part, being an Ada is all I know. I can’t compare difficulties because being an Ada has been my experience. I will say, it can sometimes be frustrating relaying info to my siblings and they refuse to listen/ take advice. But you also have to learn how to coach and support without advising (very distinct difference lol). As for pressure, I would most of it was (is) self inflicted lol. I’ve always had this drive to be better and set a very good example for my siblings to surpass.
Thank you Kamapala! Even at a young age, you can learn what it means to be a leader. I am glad you enjoyed the post.
