Yes, I know her story. I knew her when she got married because our neighbourhood was also invited. So what are you thinking now? Forget it! the ‘male’ wasn’t rich. He was just a normal guy. like you don’t know a tiny percent of the Africa woman marries the rich.
Anyway, happy is she if the normal guy is responsible and cares enough to give her peace of mind, otherwise, woe unto her! She may have to be constantly reminded of how she is unsubmissive, unsupporting, unromantic, dirty, untidy, lazy, ugly, and unable to train up her children, if the seed drop inside her makes a foetus, woe betide her if it doesn’t.
Yes, I know her story. I use to see her in the market place, under the hot scorching Africa sun and sometimes under the rain. Why won’t she? when she has children and even a husband to cater for. Isn’t she privileged to have all that?
And just the other day when she didn’t feel so privileged like that, and burst out on her husband with the one weapon they say she has (her mouth), after a generous beating by the ‘male’ who they say has a stronger weapon (his fist), wasn’t she still made by the ‘elders’ to kneel and beg him because that’s what a submissive wife should do?
and you think I don’t know why that woman made those statement as she walked down my street. Smiles.
I do surely know her story. Although I may not be able to tell the many plight she faces when she is 60, 70, 80, and 90. But I could belt they aren’t in any way that rosy, especially if she has one or two broken teeth. God help her soul.
Now, Remember that the Africa woman is everywhere. Even in the yellow man’s land. she has become a stereotype. The Africa woman is the stereotype of these plight in every living and struggling woman.
PLIGHT OF THE AFRICA WOMAN!
