Read Ghanaian Actress Lydia Forson Open Letter to All Feminists

 Lydia Forson
Dear Feminist,

Let’s not fight those who don’t get us; especially those who continue to promote the stereotype that has followed the movement for years because of the actions of some and the misconception of others.

Instead let’s try to educate them, seeing that a lot of them don’t seem to know any better or what the word feminism even means.

If that doesn’t work IGNORE and save your energy for a fight that’s really worth it.

But here’s a little education for those needing it.

1. We don’t hate men, we just don’t like the abusive, oppressive and chauvinist type; we also don’t believe our world “should” revolve around them if we don’t want it to. (Honey if you want your world to revolve around your man, go right ahead knowing you did it by CHOICE). 2. We don’t hate marriage, we just don’t believe it’s a MUST for every woman, or there’s a timeline for when you should just to please society.

Wisdom Wednesday: Create Your Own

Keep placing yourself in a winning position. Nothing good comes easy and there's no such thing as overnight success. It may seem like some people are lucky and everything's happening for them... but guess what? They've been working their entire a*s off: making solid connections at networking events, returning endless phone calls, following leads consistently, developing and fostering relations, putting in work and being consistent.

Dear Applicant I Don’t Think You Really Wanted That Job!

Unemployment is everywhere, they say.

Jobs are not available, they cry.

We didn't stand a chance, they chorus.

Well here’s my reply to you, dear applicant.

Dear Applicant,

You applied for a job and I called you for a phone interview but you never picked up your phone and you never called back. Did you think I was a stalker or your little nephew asking for money again?

I Am Amazed When Women Hurriedly Say Yes To Proposals” – Jumoke Adenowo

Jumoke Adenowo
Excerpts from Jumoke Adenowo’s narratives on Kemi Adetiba’s ‘King Woman’

My mum was my first role model. It took me a while actually to realize she was my first mentor. She didn’t tell me what a woman could do. She just did it and I saw it. I mean, she was all over. She traveled all over the world more than my dad did. My mum traveled a lot but I didn’t feel it. Because I remember she was there at 3:30 for lunch and will be there at dinner.

I think I lost a bit of my childhood there because I was her confidant and the things I had to cope with. I had to bear the burden of stuffs like her husband’s infidelity. That was a bit much. My dad and I are still close. I wasn’t happy with the choices he made as a husband but he wasn’t my husband. It’s an era of men who tried to have a monogamy but failed at it. They thought the tried enough. But they didn’t realize if you make a vow, you really should keep at it.
