I have been fortunate to be at the right place at the right time, thanks to God's grace. For the purposes of this post, I can disclose nothing more than that my work affords me the opportunity to work with the female delegates of the National Conference, currently taking place in the Federal Capital of Nigeria. One thing I have found is that opportunities come but once but not all grabbing at that chance are worthy of its grasp.
Women should be allowed to do and act in whichever way we damn well please. Not for the sake of throwing a feminist tantrum, but for the mere fact that we also are worthy human beings. Men are allowed to palm the oysterous globe while women peer over their necks? ENOUGH! Women should be allowed to set the bar as high as they personally see fit. Why are men commended for aiming high independently and women are condemned for following the same path?

A female delegate openly addressed the floor of the National Conference, professing a woman's place was in the kitchen, donning an apron. A female acquaintance of mine openly condemned women who dressed promiscuously as crying out to be raped. Lastly, I have in the past shut down girls nearing 30's who've decided to become homeowners while praising men in that same position. The hypocrisy is rich on our breaths and I'm stepping out to try to understand why that is.
