Rant Of The Day – Please, Free Her

By Grace Shaibu

Hello Readers, 

Welcome to the rant column. 

I want to address this issue of people expecting a woman to be a certain way, do certain things and handle certain assignments. It is good to be expectant of the woman, that the woman be able to manage home  ‘work’ popularly known as House Chores but let her be herself at it. Let’s be sincere with ourselves, we have a society that believes in teaching the woman to be Total, but that doesn’t mean she enjoys most of these totalities that’s been presented to her.

There are women who don’t enjoy cooking. Now there is a difference between a woman who doesn’t know how to cook and the woman who doesn’t enjoy cooking! The later knows how to cook but it is not just the everyday thing for her. Don’t bash her! When she says, she doesn’t enjoy it, it is because she doesn’t. I hate that statement when people say, ‘and you are a woman, and you don’t enjoy cooking, you don’t enjoy washing clothes, you don’t enjoy sweeping’ Oh puhhhhllllleeeezzzeeeee!!! where is it written that because I am woman, I should enjoy whatever is presented to be ‘womanly’. Everyone can do anything however they like it. Let her be! You don’t spite her for that!

Excuse me, no matter what is presented to you, it is your choice to make and I will advise that women keep speaking about what they enjoy and what they do not enjoy. Say it loud, Say it clear and be unapologetic about it. It is who you are! Be yourself!

    You may not know it, but you speak on salient issues. I wonder when people say as a woman you be able to and what If I can’t do somethings? Does it make me less of a human? or a woman? Thanks for speaking truth .
